    That's a great price, most places in North America want that for one light plus shipping.

    Update: I finally got my Lightforce 215 LED covers, they fit the Aurora 7" LED lights perfectly! Bonus, they have white writing and not the yellow shown in the pics online!!!

    Between my brackets being flimsy, random leds back feeding and staying in and being generally disappointed with the beam pattern, I’m ready to take my $80 amazon specials off.

    I’ll be moving up the vision x. They’re great for the money, but just not enough.

    Building off that, has anyone throughly tired the Hella 500 HID swap? Where these knock offs are cheap the Hella 500’s are too, but I’m wondering if you can get a superior beam lateen from the HID kits

    I'm curious which one you got? The ones I have do not have flimsy brackets and no failing LEDs
    These are the ones I purchased https://amzn.to/2L2Y3Di in 185W

    Exactly my experience. I was able to sell my knockoffs on craigslist for what I paid, so it was a pain free experience on that end.

    I did an 75w HID conversion on my Hella 4000's and the results are amazing. I have one corner beam and one euro beam, I have yet to wheel with another truck that has better mid to long range light output as these HID Hella's.

    Mad Matt, I also run a set of Hella 4k's. How much does this conversion to HID's cost please?
    Thanks

    The hella conversion is just the cost of an hid kit and some time. Hella 500 would be an h3c to keep the beam pattern correct. Not sure what bulb the 4000s take.
