    That really is the only insulting part of the LT package, otherwise IMO it's a much better equipment/price value than the LTZ.

    I did an easy 10-minute swap to high performance halogen bulbs in mine, which gave substantial improvement for the $40 I spent. When they burn out, I plan to use one of the LED kits people have reported on here. Retrofitting the actual HID setup seems like a little more cost and effort than it may be worth. IMO.

    They may seem fine and they are adequate, that is until you drive something with factory hid/led. I feel like I'm driving without lights compared to our 5yr old jeep.

    I think GM might be the only company with $50k+ vehicles without factory HID or LED headlights.

    Yeah but have you noticed they are not as bright as the ones on the LTZ?

    They're also not the same color. The LT ones are yellow and dim, while the DRLs on the Premier are bright blue LED.

    Has anyone seen the tests done by IIHS? They found the halogen projectors to be less than adequate, while the HID headlights were indeed impressive.

    Congrats on the newer Tahoe. I hope it brings your fam many happy miles :)

    Nice ride man. I bought a '16 this last October. Hopefully I won't have the issues you had with your '15. What was the build date on that '15 if you recall??

    Also, am I the only one who digs the 18" wheels over the 20" & 22"? I'm just not a big fan of big wheels. I also believe the 18" wheels provide a better ride with the taller profile from the tire to rim..

    I have had several friends with LTZ's and Denali's and they had nothing but issues galore with all the extra features and bullshit GM puts on them. I decided I didn't want all the features as I never used them or turned them off on previous vehicles.
