    What kind of headlights do you have?

    I tried out replacing my halogen bulbs with LEDs, loved the light, but awful radio interference.

    Is there a difference if the car is in Ready mode or ACC?

    Oh right, it's a Prime, so you have LEDs from the factory, right, not retrofits?

    I would have expected them to filter the noise better ....

    I wonder if there is some other aftermarket electrical or electronic installation which might be interfering - but only noticeable with the headlight load? No aftermarket fog-lights etc? Both High and Low-Beam? What about with parking/side lights - or DRLs?
