I agree that the definition is broad. IMO, it refers to people that buy all their "upgrades" from Autozone.

I believe that was the original definition from the 70's. @humfrz please correct.

I'm Asian.

A lot of people in here bashing using LED in the stock projector housing. Weird since as I actually have done the mod and am not just spewing off something I read online or heard somebody else say.
I have a massive amount of more light on the sides and it pushes out much further too. It cuts off exactly like it's supposed to and I don't blind anybody. It may be hard to believe since it wasn't hundreds
of dollars to get there but the roughly $15 per LED bulb I bought works and works well. The only problem could be longevity since halogen usually last many years but we all won't know that until our new
LED bulbs are 5+ years old.

Maybe a small amount of butthurt from naysayers because HID is expensive and if you already spent the money for it, you may be sore because new LED tech is making HID obsolete? Either way,
swapping the halogen bulb to LED bulb was all positive and any negatives brought up just don't exist at this point, at least on our stock halogen housing any way. Unless you have actually recently swapped
(since the LED bulbs are so much better now than a few years ago)your halogens for LED bulbs and have something negative to say anything else is just meaningless conjecture that helps nobody.

In no way am I an expert however in my recent experience I'll take LED over the HID aftermarket systems. Specific to my kids FRS we installed the Moriomoto Two-Stroke 2.0 LED bulbs and are very happy with the light output. Conversely, I also installed a HID setup in my daughters car along with all accouterments (anti-flicker, relays etc) to make the system full-proof. The HID setup has been such a pain in the ass that I uninstalled and am ordering the Morimoto Two-Strokes.

Oh, my, how did we ever get along traveling down a dusty gravel road at night with nothing but these?

Let alone moving through a fog shrouded woods at night with these?

How does this specific bulb work in this specific headlamp for this specific market? Oh, just bend this and trim that. Good luck!

No it's rice bucket. If you are a bucket of rice then you'll be full and not hungry.

Cuz these old lights probably had much better contrast than LEDs can ever hope for.

Car manufacturers aren't retarded to choose 4300k color temperature for HIDs.

This was my first LED lighting over 10 years ago for my mountain bike. The back side heated up like a bitch.
