Default LED Upgrade 2017-2018 Sonic

I haven't seen a specific thread for this so maybe a good place for all to place there finds. Since the 2017-18 has a different headlight arrangement.

I upgraded just the stock Low Beam Projector lights to an LED bulb. IT works very well, no flicker, plug and play.

Of course, the small dust cover needs to be fitted with another type in order to fit the larger LED and it's driver and allow some room for air to circulate for cooling.

since May-June I've been running with the dust cover extensions and swapped LED bulbs with our other car so it would have LED headlights too. Everything running just fine.

Note: there also are a number of rubber dust cover extensions in various sizes on Amazon. I used a pair of 85mm on our new 2017 Sonic . .. the Equinox/Terrain may need another size.
See last picture . . .



I did upgrade to a better bulb with a newer chip and brighter light output and coverage.

Currently, the bulbs have a coupon deal for $42 a pair. Very nice bulbs and about the same price as a pair of those short lasting halogen upgrade bulbs.
