Back in May I put in a pair of LED H4 bulbs.  I've had remarks to the effect that they really do stand out.
However, riding at night, I keep getting flashes from oncomers complaining about my beams, when I know I'm on low beam.  I know there are adjustment knobs for beam height, but I think it's an aspect of the diffuseness of the light emissions.
So this weekend I put in a pair of these:


I've used the Narva Plus 120s before so thought these would be worth a try.  They are $67.95 posted on eBay, and $109.98 at Super Cheap Auto.
The OEMs usually give me in excess of 60,000 kays and the Narva 120s have been returning 20,000 plus.

These worked fine through the night on the way here.  Only two flashes from truckies and I think they might be hyper-sensitive to my lovely new position lights.    :crackup
