Joe, the LT, or at least mine has a strange shaped hole for the HB plus it is deeply set in a tube so as of yet, I have not found any H3 LED bulb which is what my year LT takes being integrated into the main light assembly that would fit through the hole. I ordered several H3 types and all were a bust so I went with the HID which does fit with modification to the carrier behind it and added the light bars to compensate for the delay. Not sure you can see it in this picture but the hole is actually square and just big enough for the normal H3 bulb to fit through. the HID is smaller around so it does fit. All the LED so far are larger around.BMWCoolk.. Just thought i'd mention, that i just replaced my stock High beam bulb on my 2006 LT, with an LED H9 from xenon depot. Awesome. I had put their HID kit in, and although somewhat brighter than the LED, the instant on is way worth the change. The HID was too slow in getting to full brightness. The LED is a direct replacement, and only cost 75 bucks.. Check it out.
James, I went to the link I have in my Amazon orders and there is no H7 listed there any longer and it took me to an H1 bulb instead. No idea if they are interchangeable. Here is one that is very similar, even brighter. I believe my bulb is 2500 lumens and that is pretty bright. Since the light is emitted from the sides of the bulb, these are particularly well suited for the LT with the integrated HB as it blocks what might be any dead spot in the center. The ones I bought with the braided heat sink fit entirely inside the headlight and I could place the back on with no holes. The other bulbs with big fans on the back may not fit with the cover on. These being so much brighter, may not be suitable, either too bright or make too much heat to be enclosed. For me, 2500 lumens at 6K color is more than enough for normal night riding.You have a model / part# for that low beam LED?
6000K is the color which is going to be bright white, no yellow and not blue so that is good. The heat sink unless it is the flexible braided band type may not fit inside and still allow the cover to go on plus, if there is a fan, if the fan dies, the light will overheat and shut down. Most with the aluminum heat sink also have a fan which would be the weak link. Post a link and I will look at it.Found one on ebay. 45W 6000k with a metal,Aluminum heat sink Is that decent? Or too bright?
I am not Godon, but it does plug directly into the existing socket. There should be enough room to fit everything inside the socket. If not, your bulb cover should already have a hole in it since there was a hid there at one time.Gordon, does that 5000 lumen LED plug directly into the stock wiring?
Bob, Mike is right as long as you get the right kind. The one I have has the copper band heat sink, no fan and is 2500 lumen and 6k color. It is white with maybe a tiny hint of blue but mostly white. Really lights up the street signs even in the daylight. They are making much brighter bulbs now but I would stick with nothing more than what I have or you will likely be flashed in the daytime as well as at night.Thanks Mike! (We can't all be Gordon)
