Default Anyone use this style of LED lights?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-CLUB-CAR...item259298a2bf

Has anyone used these? I bought new lights in this style but in the halogen style and they are totally useless, nothing but a big halo and no direct light on the road. I am wondering if they are any better in LED.

You can just replace the bulbs, save a ton of cash. I don't think it is necessary to go with HIDs on a battery powered cart when you can get just about the same performance with LEDs and less power drawn from the batteries.

I could be wrong here, but I believe you are all missing the point. This is not a bulb problem, this what I believe is a reflector problem, these lights do not have a focused beam at all. The reflectors cast the beams out in a halo, with a significant dark spot in the center, if I shine these directly on the garage door you have a circle of light with an extreme dark center, so when you drive, it is actually dangerous as the road in front of you is NOT illuminated but the ditches or trees are.

That is why I think this is not a bulb problem, maybe I am wrong, I welcome the input.

Oh sorry I missed that, the reflector can make a huge difference.

If you upgrade the stock lights replacing just the lamp would work, can you post a pic of the new lights you have, this is weird that they do that. I agree not safe at all.

They look nice, is this a sealed beam?

So the tail lights are good?
You just need the main lights, do you have the original lights? If so are they sealed also or can you replace the lamps? If so I would put to original reflectors back on and replace the bulbs with new Cree LEDS.
