As much as I would totally love that bling, I'm not ready to drop 350 per headlight.

I agree they are really expensive. I would like to see if the price justifies the quality.

We use them on HMMWVs in Iraq, and expect them to last the life of the vehicle, also harder to shoot out completely than a single light. They've got an expected service life of like 20-30 years.

I looked at the site but did not see the power consumption vs a normal headlight.

Dependant on the draw that could be a nice selling point

So I take it "DOT Approved" is synonymous with "legal"?
