I own a 2014 Chevrolet Trax LT and love it so far. I replaced the headlights and highbeams with Sylvania Silverstar Ultras at $60 Canadian per set. Well lets just say they suck. The lowbeams are ok but the high beams are useless. I have been looking at HID's or possibly LED's but I think that from what I have read LED's are pretty much pointless and a waste of money. Has anyone installed HID's or LED's? I am interested in installation information as well as reviews or opinions.

Thanks!

Well that does seem pretty cheap for good lights. I don't think LEDs are a waste of money. I think it all depends on the particular set though. You can't really lump them all together.

How bright do you want the high beams? May end up blinding oncoming traffic if you go with something really bright.
From experience i've found that 4000k is a good brightness to keep it at, enough to see ahead of you and to have good throw along with not blinding people.

I have just installed LED in my 2016 Trax and they are bright, the only thing is you have to cut the cover so the fan can fit and wires, but well worth the money.

Who told you LEDs were a waste of money? You have to buy the right kit... definitely can't use the regular plug in ones but use the good ones that utilize some sort of cooling aid on the end of them. Typically a fan or some string looking weird thing
