    Welcome to HID Planet!

    Let's just start with: The "upgrade" to LED is rarely an upgrade. For the most part, LEDs do not belong in halogen housings. The optics are all wrong. Of course, there are exceptions.

    The box is necessary, it's the driver and provides proper power to the bulb.

      99% of bulbs on the market are junk, don't bother. There are specific cases where it does work (XenonDepot, Diode Dynamics SL1), and you will have to research and find out if it will work with your headlights. You'll be dropping a pretty penny for them as well.

        So,led can not replace halogen or hid? and what is the exception?

        I saw many products without the box,if I buy this type,I must buy a box from others to drive it?

            The exceptions are bulbs like Diode Dynamics SL1 and XenonDepot XtremeLED Pro. They're pricey but they're worth it. And again, it depends on the headlights. The XenonDepot one works amazing in my Lexus but in a Subaru Impreza Sport it glared badly.

            No, they'll always come with the driver box. They're specific to the bulbs.
