I commute to/from work in the dark and am thinking of converting to HID, but would be interested in testing or buying your product. More light will enable me to travel safer & faster
In a slightly related effort to glean more light out of my BMW G650GS I went with the Philips Extreme Vision H4 bulb. It has much better light with same watts and good life expectancy.

The OEM parking lamp(shares the same pod & with same lenses/separate reflectors as OEM HL) has potential for more light down the road than the stock W5W 50 lumen bulb but the LED I tried from ebay seller: epanda_house that has 700 lumens ,the bulb was too long and thus too close to the lens for me. I now have a Japan Polarg W5W bulb that will at least improve conspicuity , I hope.
There should be a way to put more usable light down the road from that parking lamp with the right LED? Ideas?
