Hi Zack, As far as brightness is concerned, they are comparable to HID type bulbs. There is a significant improvement at night over standard halogen bulbs. We are currently working on a video illustrating the differences, so keep an eye out for that as it will be released soon.

The problem with universal HID's is they will light up the entire housing on low beam and that will have oncoming traffic flashing their brights at you. With these LED's on low beam, only one side of the bulb itself is illuminated, so it provides a cutoff low enough that as long as your headlights are properly aligned, will prevent glare on oncoming traffic. I run these in my factory headlights on my Roush, and do not have any issues with oncoming traffic.

I expect I will want to run with the low beam 'always on' (Lo powered ala (fused)relay off 'hi' beam). Will these LED bulbs support the heat generated and, if so, what life-expectancy might I realize with both sides of the bulb (Hi/Lo) lit up? Halogens have survived this practice of mine and don't seem to suffer considering the length of time I use 'hi' beam and both filaments illuminated. (reason? Lo floods the road nicely and 'hi' gives the 'reach' down the road).

With the heat sink these have, they will stay plenty cool versus standard halogen bulbs. They are rated to last up to 30k hours, so you shouldn't have any issues running them as day time running lights if you chose. The way these function, when high beam is on, both the low and high beam LED's will be illuminated.
