It's reflectors so you shouldn't be putting LEDs in the headlights. Why do you need bright lights to see at night with window tint? I sure hope you aren't putting 5% tint on your front windshield.

Either way, if you need bright just go with a regular incandescant/filament bulb like what's in the car now. It'll have better light output than an LED would. Find one with brighter light output than the stock bulb and you're good to go.

I knew a Cuban co worker in Miami who always drove with her Brights on so she could see better at night. I guess this was the custom in her home land

People like this should not possess a drivers license.

Headlights - retrofit or don't put anything but halogens in them. It makes other drivers hate you when the light scatters everywhere and blinds them.

Aiming the headlights properly (lots are off from the factory - most Cruzes you see on the road seem to have very dim headlights), upgrading the wiring harness, and using ExtremeVision halogen bulbs makes a significant difference in the lighting output of a stock Cruze

The one I mentioned - Phillips extremevision - is at the top of the category for lumen output. That will help you more than tinted bulbs like the Silverstars (which also very poor life in my experience).

Any tinted bulbs that will put out a blue/white light look will actually put out *less* usable light. But hey, if you just want it to look cool, there you go.
