Community Q&A Question: Capping?

Asking About: Mustang Headlight LED Bulb Kit (05-12)



I know a lot of HID kits recommend the bulbs being capped or having a housing that caps the bulbs anyways. My 2009 stock lights don't have these. Would this be an issue for brightness or glare like HIDs may have?

The problem with universal HID's is they will light up the entire housing on low beam and that will have oncoming traffic flashing their brights at you. With these LED's on low beam, only one side of the bulb itself is illuminated, so it provides a cutoff low enough that as long as your headlights are properly aligned, will prevent glare on oncoming traffic. I run these in my factory headlights on my Roush, and do not have any issues with oncoming traffic.

Thanks for the quick response! Awesome! That was really my only concern. So once they're back in stock, I'll be buying. :) - Chris 4 years ago
