Just finished installing the LED headlights of the D90. Compared to the Hella Vision Plus with a 55w H4 bulb, they were probably 3 to 4X as bright. Very white light (5000Kelvin). I still need to get the HID replacement bulbs on the D110 and then I can do a side by side.

I got them for $300 each (List is a lot higher). On the plus side: It is less than a Hella 4000 HID and it is supposed to last 50,000 hrs.

Just search trucklite LED, you'll find plenty of retailers. Interested to see the comparison.
