Hi everyone,

Has anyone replaced headlight bulbs in the Forte with LEDs? Are you happy with the result? Any problems like flickering and stuff?
Also, I am a bit concerned about that 'glare' some LEDs produce. Is it going to be a problem?

Any help is highly appreciated!

I just finished changing all the exterior bulbs to LEDs.. my hooptie is a 2017 Forte S sedan with factory led drl, signals on mirrors, 3rd brake light, and tail lights.. I used all auxito canbus error free bulbs except for front and rear turn signal n they were auxbeam canbus error free n built-in load resistor.. .. my lo beams were h7,hi beam was 9005, n fogs were h8. I used auxito c7 style in all 3 spots.. went pretty smooth but drivers side is very tight.. make sure u get the h7 that has the 3 locking tabs.. I'm pretty happy so far cept signals flash lil faster than stock but not really a hyper flash.. my lo beam really sucked so this was a vast improvement.. I got all 6500k

Wow, looks great! Thank you so much for your help. Last night I spoke to another guy about LEDs, and he also said not to go way too cheap, as $15 LEDs are crappy, which I understand. I ordered a set for headlights (low beams only) by Fahren, and fog lights that are coming to me are also Fahren LED.
I first looked at Hikari, but they seem to have too wide beam pattern which I don't think I need. Then I went reading about different LEDs and found several reviews about Fahren on the Forte. As you said, some people also said that the other LEDs they tried installing were somewhat too tight at the driver's side. Yet I've read that Fahren should be okay.
Anyways, my bulbs should arrive today or on 26th, so I will do the installation and then will post back to tell you how it goes.
It may be also helpful for someone I think.
