Taochis is a new brand for HID & LED lighting. According to the bulbs quality and the packing method, we think they are really want to built up their brand and expanding their automotive market in US.
Taochis headlights are an inexpensive alternative to the costly HID Conversion Kits you can find all over the internet. In fact, they are so inexpensive that we were skeptical when we first ordered the HID kit. How did the kit perform
Well, right out of the box we were a little worried. The installation directions seemed a little too vague to be helpful. In fact, we ended up using only the installation diagram for the install. Luckily, the bulbs were plug and play, making the installation relatively easy.
As far as the headlights are concerned, we were fairly pleased. They are definitely brighter than the stock halogen bulbs that came in our vehicle. While the item description claimed to be pure white, the 6000k bulbs we installed actually burn with a tinge of blue in them. Weve been driving with them for over a year and still havent had anyone flash their high beams at us. This is partially due to the design of the reflector housing on the 2008 Pathfinder. It was engineered to cut the light off horizontally, similar to projector headlights. Thus, even with the HID bulbs in a reflector housing, we havent had any issues.
As you can see, the bulbs are almost identical in color to the headlights found in the 2011 BMW vehicles. Its a very clean, crisp looking light. We chose the 6000k because, after a lot of research, they seemed to be the brightest while still having a little color to them. We feel that if we would have gone with the 8000k they would have been more blue, while the 4300k would have been borderline yellow (the same color as halogen bulbs).
We decided to go with the BI-Xenon HID kit, allowing for both low-beam and high-beam lighting. We have never needed the high beam, as the low-beam is bright enough, even on dark nights.
On a scale of 1-10, we give the Taochis bulbs an 7. They come in at right around $14.99, it worth this value, w2 reason, 1st the packing very strong, the seller care about the safety of the bulbs, 2nd when we driving the car, the lights color always keep in stable performance, without any flicker. But unfortunately, one of the bulbs burned out after 15 month of use.
We recommend Taochis bulbs because they are stable, bright and not flicker. Quality is good also. But if the life span longer than 2 years or more will be perfect.
If you are care about the life span only 15 months, Taochis LED car headlight is good for you. We will have review for Taochis LED headlight in the future.
