Re: LT HID Light Comparison
I wonder guys, how dependable are the HID lights compared to the "regular" H7? I just bought a new H7 bulb at autozone where they had 5 different levels of brightness to choose from. Of course, they were not the true HID. On the back of the packages, they listed a "life expectancy" comparison between the 5. The normal bulb was expected to last 4 times longer than the brightest two and only 2X brighter than the first two. Though less bright, I bought it. For now. I would go to HID, but I want to have some idea first whether I'll be frequently changing the bulbs. Does anybody know this??
