I just upgraded the headlights in my Pontiac Solstice to LED, and wow what a difference.  Does anyone know of a reason that adding LEDs such as these to the Aztek wouldn't work?  Thanks in advance.

From the product description it should be plug and play. I know with HID you need an ballast due to voltage differences. With LED lights, you can typically get more light with less voltage, so shouldn't be any issue or than being a low price aftermarket light bulb.

My advice would be to at least do a simple projector retrofit. You can put any bulb in the stock halogen location as long as you get the correct bulb type. The cutoff won't be very good in the stock bowls though. Check out the retrofit source for everything you'll ever need.

LED lights, unlike HIDs, are designed to produce a beam similar to Halogen bulbs. It is a direct replacement. Just get good quality bulbs!

I have also been considering switching to LED headlight bulbs. I just don't know which are the best... there are so many options from Asia. Hopefully someone will be the guinea pig here Smiley
