Life is good... so far
Another fun number. A 50,000 hour bulb run 24/7 would burn 5.7 years. If you were watching the video closely, a few things become apparent. ALL bulbs deteriorate, some faster than others. Amount of physical light when measured varies depending on type of reflector systems, with a bit more from regular reflectors. The same bulb used in two reflector types gives different light outputs. In some cases HID is better and in some LED is better. A projector unit controls light pattern more consistently with a tad more loss. A 45W led in a reflector(high Beam) will out shine the low beam (projector) with a 35W bulb as it will if both are using the same because the high beam is supposed to. That is what lights the distance. Fog lights should be left as fog lights. They were designed for that purpose. Repurposing them as DRLs or cornering lights defeats their intended design and is a bad compromise at best. The biggest gripe I have had with my Eos has been the Headlights and that they are used as DRLs. Would love to turn them off. I just haven't seen any options I am comfortable with unless yo can turn the headlight DRLs off and use some type of auxiliary lights in its place. Someone has added a Philips kit and mounted it in the bumper/grille area but I don't remember if it was the only running DRL.
