Gen1 Headlight LED Question

My LEDs are very dim in both the Halos and in the 3 on top and I was wondering how I could get them brighter. They are definitely a lot more dim than everyone else Got them all wired into the relay harness for the highbeams/turnsignal/DRLs. I need replacement LED bulbs but I'm not sure where to get them and what resistors I need if I need them.

Please clarify which bulb you want to replace by LED's!!! What year is your car?
As far as your Halo's check if the voltage is around 14.3V with engine running. You might have a bad connection lowering voltage.

hehehe

you'll have to test the voltage of the LED's, might be 12v, might be 2v.
You know how to solder i'm guessing, so you'll just remove the old ones, and solder in the new ones

never done it myself however, so not 100%
