Default LED headlights vs HID headlights

Has anyone put their LED K9 headlights side by side with a K9 that has HID or really, any vehicle with HID to compare?

Something tells me the LED headlights on the K9 aren't as sharp as what you see in the video below:


Fast forward to the 2:35 mark unless you like a lot of details:

@K5, I presume you prefer the output and less fatique of your LED's? Have you ever been flashed in your K9 due to your LED's?

Do any of you guys know what bulb size the K900 uses? I just bought a 2017 K900 looking into changing the Low Beam lights.

Pretty sure that if you have HIDs, the 2017 K900 uses the D3S bulbs.

You can confirm this by contacting your dealer and providing them with your VIN.

If they are D3S bulbs, we offer two great options to upgrade the bulbs, both of which include a 2-year free bulb replacement warranty.

Morimoto XB HID D3S Bulbs - K5 Optima Store (Same brightness as the OEM factory HID Bulbs, but different color options)

OSRAM XENARC 66340 CBI HID D3S Bulbs (20% brighter than the OEM Factory HID bulbs)

Both of the bulb options are in stock here, and ready to ship out. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out anytime.
