I've had to do many hours driving with just black out lights and moon light for the military and you would be amazed at how well you can see with little to no light. That's w/o NVG's too btw.
Obviously this thing is highly subject, and I think it's safe to say you are in the minority. Given most vehicles these days will offer HID or LED option and most people running rally uses LED/HID.
I have many types of projectors from Hella and have tested them in person, this setup works for me and if you look at other people's experience it's quite consistant. I'm just here to get a few people to help me pay for the tooling.
Please help me keep my original goal in focus. We can start another thread about how lights can be too bright. Thanks
