Breaker 1-9, anybody got a copy? Any discussion or mods relating to electrons and wires go here.

Any opinions on LED light bars instead of headlights? lots of miatas have them (not sure how to attach a picture but i have a reference) Just wanted to know what y'all think of them. Maybe like a 4" flood light. If responses are good i may go for it and keep y'all updated.

Yeah, DONT. Manufacturers design headlight assemblies to let you see the road without blinding other drivers retinas out, LED bars are a different story. Not to mention, it's against the law. Those lights are specifically for off-road use ONLY.

They aren't designed with a sharp enough beam pattern for traffic driving. You can get the so called "spot" beam ones, but they still aren't adequate for keeping light on the road and out of other people's vision.
