Indeed it would ! However, if you know of a DOT approved Hi/Lo system for under $800 that actually IS better than the HID's, I'd really like to know where they are, because I can't find any ! I've tried several so called 'high performance' units and they aren't even close to the HID's.

I don't think anyone would doubt that LED's are the way it's going and they really will suit this application. I find it interesting that the High end cars are still mainly HID ( BMW's. Lexus etc), even though they use LED's as marker lights like a Christmas tree.

If you know of some, please tell !

Cheers Ian
