    First LED Headlights Appear, Unleash Astonishing Styling Possibilities



    While LED taillights have become commonplace, we haven't seen them in the front of vehicles until now. The first production cars to use LED headlights will be the Audi R8 and Lexus LS, with more on the way. LEDs last longer and use less power, but by far the most appealing aspect of these tiny lights: the styling possibilities, where they take up much less room and can be distributed on the front of the car in unusual ways.

    It's not easy engineering these LEDs for headlight use, because they get hotter than a two-dollar pistol, plus that heat from the engine compartment doesn't help, either. We're glad they sorted that out, though, because check out how way-cool these rides look. Not long from now, vehicles with old-skool conventional headlights will be about as appealing as grandma's mustache.
    about time i say! Good stuff

    WTF is a 2 dollar pistol?

    anyway... it would be a bitch to replace those lights if any go out. The circuits would fry themselves out with that constant use.

    I guess two dollar pistol is cheap gun that gets hot after first shots and destroys itself that way. Well but I cant say, I am englishman from czech

    I´ve read bout those light, yet seen them only on back of new Volswagen Passat and newer Volswagens.
    That Audi seems absolutely great, reminds me the one from I robot LITTLE bit, but seems goddamn perfect

    Are LED's bright enough to compete with regular headlights? I'm not sure why this switch is necessary.
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.
