Then perhaps you should tell all the major automakers to stop using LEDs standard on all their cars.

Perhaps you all use cheap ass LED's.

Just because it is done on other cars does not mean it is meant for ours. Throw some HID's in your stock housing! Seems like your thing, since all the big manufacturers are doing it now.

Halogens are just as blinding, its not something exclusive to HIDs.

False. A factory set up halogen is strictly set up with strict standards to shoot a direct line of light, apposed to a incorrectly/retro fitted HID which spread light not shoot it in a beam. Which is why they are illegal to have in stock housing.

LED License Plates bulbs are like neons, worth-less and just uses excessive light that could distract a driver.

Never got hi beams flashed at me for my hids. They don't bother me as well. What's more of a problem is lifted trucks behind you with halogen or hids. Still doesn't bother me but oncoming cars with hids is just whatever. Some cars such as escalades that come equipped with hids are more brighter than those with hids in halogen housings. Anyways, LEDs in my license plates are fine and look great. Anyone get led cree bulbs for reverse?

Are those the "projector" looking LEDs I see? I have some 9 SMD ones from CarID or something. They're pretty nice, but I wish it was brighter sometimes.
