They seem bright enough but I do notice that I am using the Hella driving lights more, which I would think means they are not quite as good. I dig the low draw and bomb proof aspect.

Yes, the question was posed to those where indicating opinions with never having seen the lights in person.

Carey told me you did one set of LEDs on a customers truck, not one of your own.
So how did they do last winter????
The lack of heat seems like a real issue.
What were the results of driving them in the snow and ice??????

I've done a few customer trucks and one of them lives up here and I drive it a couple of times a week. Didn't notice any real issues with winter, but didn't drive in anything really nasty at all. They get pretty warm so I can't imagine it would be an issue, assuming perhaps ice / snow buildup may be an issue?

Warm? Really??? I just left these ones on for about 45 minutes on high beam and they aren't even lukewarm to the touch? They are pretty much the same temp as the rest of the truck, they haven't really put out any extra heat at all.

Yours get warm?

Here are some shots. Have no idea how to take good pictures with headlights on, but will give it a better try some evening.
These are H4s with upgraded bulbs on the BRG 90 and the LEDs on the Blue 110.

From looking at the pics the LEDS are brighter than the H4s.

Hard to tell much from just looking at them with the lights on, most light comparisons I have seen are typically done pointing out at an object from the same distance at night or in the dark.

I am guessing you are a busy guy so it might not be worth your time but might be useful for your (paying) customers to compare the beam pattern / brightness between stock, upgraded and LED.

Here is a review that I came across when buying a new bike light for my wife as an example of what I am talking about.

http://acidinmylegs.blogspot.com/200...eam-shots.html

That little light uses 3 little LEDís but it is amazingly bright (sadly costs as much as a set of the LED headlights but cars should see her)

Any thoughts on how they are to drive with (the LED's) i really like the bullet proof ness of them and the ease of the install (i am running an ARB wiring harness + hella E-codes and uprated 100w (?) bulbs) and want a bit better light all in all. i was looking at the 90mm bi-xenon units from hella (would require some surgery to make it work and trim peices, etc - basically a Pita but do-able)

This would be a far simplier solution

What about the Sylvania 7" Bi-xenons?

What is really needed is a side by side comparison.... It the the only way to get a good review.

ECR must be able to do that as they have a parking lot full of Defenders????

No trucks here with HIDs.

We'll get to some sort of test someday, but other than for shits and grins there isn't much motivation (as we don't sell any of this stuff).... and this time of year we are f'ing swmped with Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard trucks that have to all be done and delivered prior to Memorial Day weekend.

Sorry...too many subjects at once...

A comparison to "stock" headlights and/or a high quality halogen if you have one. Park side by each in front of a wall when it is dark. Compare brightness and beam pattern. 15 minutes of your time....

:
These went from 61deg off to 72deg low beam and 78deg high beam. So you are right, they don't put out shit for heat, and I have no clue as to how ambient temps effect this.

I'd suppose someone with a little more time / search talent could find out more eh?

Thanks for those pics, Mike. Gives a better idea of how the blue-ish light looks on the Defender.
