Profile Performance: The automotive aftermarket’s best name in LED Lighting; and there's no such more powerful and controlled way to light the road than with a set of high performance headlight projectors. While Bi-xenon projectors have been the industry standard for over a decade, new options from both Morimoto and Profile are here to stay. Up until recently we thought LED was best suited for the accessories around your headlights, not the headlights themselves. Today things have changed though, and we are confident enough to use the Bi-Lens LED projectors on our own cars, and therefore we're confident enough to recommend them to you.
Well Done: The new Profile Bi-Lens 2.0 projector is plenty bright, and we're not talking big blob of uncontrolled light-bar bright. We're talking well-controlled, non-glaring light output for use on the road. These bi-LED projectors’ advanced optics, curved cutoff shield, and an all-new linear HML3 chipset come together to create a properly distributed and wide beam pattern with a proper ECE style step in the middle. With a factory-installed clear lens, the cutoff like is nice and sharp/colorful.
Easy Install: Despite the fact that there's a bit of extra heft on the back of the bi-LED projector, their overall size is pretty similar to something like Morimoto's Mini D2S. Respectably compact enough to fit in most headlights, the Bi-Lens features a removable threaded-shaft style mount on the back that allows the projectors to be locked on with their included hardware, and minimal modifications to your headlight. If you've been considering a Mini H1 retrofit for the ease of install, these aftermarket LED headlights are a comparable option to think about.
Simple: Separate bulbs to buy? Nope. Big ballasts to mount? Nada. Relay harness to run? Not a worry. The Profile Bi-Lens setup is nothing more than the projector itself and the small external LED driver to regulate power. If you don’t have the space or simply the patience to deal with all the necessary gear that powers HID-based systems, that's reason enough to look further into going all LED headlights.
Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact Us

I've only had them for about a month but there are no reviews (at the time i'm writing this) and I know how frustrated I get when I can't find reviews of something that looks really promising so here it is.
My retro is a 2010 Tahoe. I used the Profile Bi-Lens LED 2.0 projectors in the low beam bowl and Profile Hi-LED Arrays in the hi-beam bowl. So far so good, absolutely no problems. The Bi-Lens projectors are phenomenally bright...many times more so than the Silverstar halogens I had before, and the width of the beam, in practice at least, is better than the Morimoto M-LED (that's why I chose these instead based on youtube videos I saw). I saw in reviews elsewhere that the color temp of these units was on the warm side...perhaps that was v1.0 or those reviewers don't have an eye for color temp because these (v2.0) are well above 5000k. They make my 5000k LED DRLs look yellow in comparison.
One possible issue that I need to mention is depth...these are relatively deep...I had to trim the outer edge of my shrouds to clear the headlamp lens, and really had to do a lot of dremel work in the bowl to get them to sit in far enough to both fit and look right.
Overall i'm very happy one month in. My reasons for going with these instead of H1 or D2S HID units were all for simplicity - fewer points of failure and so far they have delivered.
