I wasn't thinking of gettig LEDs, but HIDs. Like you mentioned, you've got to fork over good money to get a good LED unit.
Supposedly, these Hella lamps have the hockey stick cut off for the incoming traffic on the left side. Here's the description from the website:
Hella 7" Round H4 Conversion Headlamps Datsun 240Z 260Z 280Z S30 280ZX S130 Roadster 311 70476 99996-70476
Made in Germany
Includes 60W/55W H4 Hella bulbs
These lamps are designed for cars that live in and/or travel in countries that drive on the right hand side of the road.
They emit the “hockey stick” lighting pattern where there is a sharp cutoff on the left hand side that keeps the light from glaring into on coming tracffic
Also, these lamps have just a slight curvature on the glass face- not totally flat, but not a noticeable outward bulge like the OE sealed beam types."
So, my question to clarify things for me, will I be ok if I buy some HID bulbs? I won't have to upgrade to a relay system to avoid melting anything? At the same time I'll have better lighting for night driving?
Or just run with what I've got and use the relay system? Information overload ?.
