I've only had a chance to try it in my yard at night. I have HID lights, 35w low and 55 high; so I wasn't all that short on light to begin with. The problem was the delay on the high beam. There is NO delay on high now. Even the low LED position puts out a nice fill in the center. On high those babies reach out and when the HID decides to attend the party, Bambi doesn't stand a chance . The only point that I would make, is you have to watch where you mount them because you can get in the way of removing side panels.

Thanks for the update TuefelHunden. When the weather gets better and you have had some time to really use them I would love to see a write-up.

Will do. I want pics of the various combinations I have. I can't believe how tight a beam these guys throw and they really reach out.
