    Anyone know if there is a way to install a brighter led bulb in the headlights. I can see at night but I've seen better systems on other high-end vehicles

    Try adjusting them first. Mine are great. I'm used to hids in my two other cars and LEDs on my 4th car

    Unless I'm mistaken or there's been a change, the Model S headlights are HIDs, not LED's.

    The parking/running lights are LEDs, but not the headlights.

    Model S factory headlights are not LEDs they are HID, and no I don't think there is an easy way to upgrade them but if you search this forum I think you will find posts about people trying to do it.
