    I went with Nicro Evolution LED replacement after another member recommended them. They don’t have fans and the lighting is far superior to the OEM halogen. Fitment is plug and play. The fan bulbs have 1 more thing that can go wrong IMO. The ME’s are not cheap at around 150 for the pair. There are others much cheaper. Would be curious how they perform. So far mine have worked flawlessly.

    Hmm looks like they do have a fan. Maybe it’s a newer version now. But they do have a 2 year warranty. Thanks for the info!

    I have these but for my Prius! The work great actually and are super bright ! I used to run HIDS, and those were very bright, but that pattern would always glee on coming drives! But these shine far without that!

    They look more like heat sinks, for dissipating the heat.

    There’s a fan on the inside according to the website. After looking at more options, it seems like most of the best rated LEDs have them. I guess there’s no way around it if you want a really bright bulb. But I did find that the supernovas, and the ME’s both have a 2 year warranty.

    That does make sense, fan would cool better than heatsinks.
    I am looking at these and Precision LED. they have the same set up.

    I’ve been eyeing the supernovas for quite some time. I went ahead and ordered them about 10 minutes ago. 2 day shipping. Now I wait.

    From research on my end, the Supernovas v.4 look like the best thing going in the LED world right now and things are getting better. The Supernovas have the best beam pattern which is the most important matter when lighting the road. Keep us posted. Excited to see how these work for you as I’m very close to making the switch from Halogen to LED myself.

    This is what I've just installed my my truck.

    Auxbeam LED Headlight Bulbs NF-S1 Series LED Headlights with 2 Pcs of H4 9003 HB2 P43T PHILIPS CSP LED Headlight Conversion Kit 50W 8000lm 6000K Hi-Lo Beam - 1 Year Warranty https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074GZ3S4P/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_yczkCb3T9JBE9

    After seeing some videos and ratings for some of the best rated LED bulbs, I purchased these and they are excellent. Beam cut off is excellent with no light scatter. I also ordered the fogs as well. Light output and color is very white. You can't go wrong for the price on these. Also a note that these bulbs are replacing another set of LED bulbs I was using. They had fans and were loud. The bulbs they're replacing were called lightning dark. I wasn't happy with the beam pattern at all.

    I just purchased a pair of these as well. Hopefully they won't scatter the lights like other LED bulbs do.

    I put a pair of the perfect fit version of the Supernova in my wife’s 2019 Highlander. No complaints so far. Good color and brightness.

    Any fan noise? Or, interference on stereo? Thanks for the feedback.

    The perfect fit models don’t have a fan or any large heat sinks.
    They’re a less bright option that are identical to the halogen bulbs.
    Brighter than halogens, but less bright than the larger leds with fans/heatsinks/drivers.

    I would have been skeptical with them being so cheap but those pictures prove me wrong. Those are great for the price.
    Getting me excited for these bulbs coming in. They come in on Thursday.

    As long as you got the NF-S1 Series you can't go wrong. Auxbeam has different series bulbs and these are the newest improved models. Get the H11 fogs as well and you'll be blown away. A note for you. I made the mistake not checking to make sure installed the headlights correctly the first time. They can go in 2 different ways. I had one bulb in correctly and the other one upside down. The beam looked horrible not to mention when I turned on the high beams.

    I ordered the Supernovas, I had the money and have been wanting them.
    I have the rigid fog light kit and D series pods instead of fog lights.

    I wanted to find something that was comparable to the novas because I really didn't want to spend that kind of money on LED bulbs good or not. I think I found what I'm happy with and no fans.

    For some reason the exact model you have doesn't ship to Canada :(

    Installed my Supernova's this morning. Fairly easy installation after watching the Headlight Revolution Youtube video of installation on a Gen 3 Tundra. The only additional thing I would add is be sure you have some nylon zip ties to secure the ballast/relay that comes with it. I wrestled with that as much as anything in the entire process.

    I did and DARN, what a change. I had swapped the factory installed OEM bulbs for Sylvania's previously, and wasn't impressed with the change.
    These Supers are awesome. Good thing the Tundra has the leveling adjustment capability.
    Huge change from both OEM and Sylvania bulbs.
