Can car with halogen headlight change to LED?

For eg, if bought a halogen headlight model (of fit or shuttle), can change the bulb to LED?

During inspection shd be ok right, since there r same model with LED headlights?

Stock comes with what means standard. If you replace it with LED, inspection able to capture in their system.
Each model/ face lift changes, LTA has been informed.
Again, you can try. If pass then happy else, you have to change back stock and send for inspection on the lights only. So i suggest you try couple of weeks before inspection due date, at least you have time to revert back to stock if fail.
My model with halogen yellow. I replaced it with white light, inspection failed.

Why inspection failed? Is it a law that light must be in halogen yellow light?

Probably have to do with color temperature

LTA will fail inspection if the headlights 超级白 until even close to 蓝

Nope not ok, will fail inspection unless the tester closes 1 eye. The reflectors for LED and halogen headlights are different and you may actually blind other drivers at night if u install LED in your current headlights.

I rem that the inspection told me : Pls revert to stock bulbs.
Thus anything not stock may not pass inspection.
There are halogen bulbs in market that is not 100% yellow, and seller claims can pass inspection, i tried before on my previous rides and it cleared inspection.

My ride always use stock halogen bulb, any bulb blown is replaced by AD workshop. Even that, Bi-yearly inspection they always indicate light bulb fail, despite that, overall still pass. I asked the inspector before, he told me that line can ignore as long as he see the bulb is yellowish
