  • Mazda cx-5 led projectors info?

    Any info on this projectors? They seem to be bi-led course I don't see any separate bulbs for high beam and headlight is completely sealed so I assume it's all led in there. On roads they look nice with cutoff and intensity. Any info who makes it or comparison with other LEDs?

    What year CX5 are you referring to?

    15-16 = Stanley bi-beam LED (low beam projector / high beam reflector)
    17-18 = Stanley bi-LED


    I have both and each are decent LED projectors. The bi-LED module in the CX5 is Stanleys single-chip version of their dual-chip bi-LED found in the RAV4 (and only found in the RAV4). It ranks in the top 5 for best OEM bi-LEDs. Maybe 3 or 4, can't recall the number from my testing at the moment.

    It is NOT better than the Koito bi-LED. This one is still king for OEM.

        No. Not yet at least. I have a ton of data I've collected on many headlamps, pnp bulbs, OEM led lamps. Just need the time to assemble it all to a digestible format for the viewing masses.

        Its not as simple as saying one is better than another. There are many factors involved. But if you have any specific questions, I can try to answer them.

          I was looking for decent output. I have Tacoma with TL 50w retrofit with balast so I'm sure it's gonna be hard to match led to that. So was gonna try to do another retro with bi-led. 15 cx-5 headlights are cheap so was gonna try those

            Yeah, no OEM LED projector at the moment is going to match a TL 50w combo. So you'll have to adjust your expectations accordingly.

            Think of the CX5 LED as a near equivalent to a very good HIR halogen projector setup.

            You can get the Koito biLED for just as cheap if not cheaper if you search hard enough on ebay (found in new Prius and Corolla headlamps). Plus they are hell of a lot easier to retro then the bulky CX5.

                Well Stanley and Ichikoh are two different brands so they technically cannot be the same.

                But yes, the 17-18 CX5 uses the single chip Stanley bi-LED module.


                Below are both Stanley dual and single chip bi-LEDs.

                  So Corolla LEDs are bi-led?

                    Only 17-19.

                    14-16 was low beam LED, halogen high beam.

                          This is hatchback corolla only headlight. Sedan is that dual led projectors kind for 2019 I think.

                            Yes.

                            Correct. The dual projector is cool looking and is a decent projector system but does not have same performance as the biled.

                            Lexus NX (single projector NOT triple beam) is also the same Koito biled.

                            This is hatchback corolla only headlight. Sedan is that dual led projectors kind for 2019 I think.
                            Right, the hatch also has the same Koito biled as the sedan.


                            This is what you will find in all the headlamps I mentioned. They are not side specific.

                              Cool thanks. Picked up both pass sides on eBay. Can't wait to try them. Maybe will fit into my STI instead of oem led projector's. If not then into tacoma
