    I'm pretty sure mine are the ones with the larger fans that have 4 screws on the back plate. Perhaps that is why mine have been problem free?

    I'm also pretty sure these are "generic" bulbs and everyone and their sister's brother's cousin is putting their name on them because I got mine through Autoanything under the PlasmaGlow name.

    In any case It doesn't really matter to me since they still work and look great. :D

    HIDs are better, but not in a halogen reflector.

    Yeah, I noticed mine said "Designed, Engineered and Packaged in the USA" :oldglory:
    but then, off to the side, in really tiny print it said............ "made in china":mad:

    Actually, NO. "They're" is a contraction of "They" and "are". "Their" indicates possession. Therefore, the phrase "They're from China" is correct.

    For example:

    They're actually pretty nice considering that their parts are made in the USA, but are assembled over there in China.

    or

    They're made over there in China, but their parts are from the USA.

    Your sentence structure and spelling are good, but you're making mistakes in your grammar. :p

    This one is kind of funny because "it's" is a contraction of it and is. the word "its" is actually possessive.

    In the first post what you were trying to indicate was: "They are from China" No possession is indicated in this statement.

    It's really a shame when a forum has substandard grammar in its posts. :rofl:

    We can do this all day if you like. :D

    Just out of curiosity, are yours the ones with the larger fans (4 screws) or the smaller ones (3 screws)?

    Did anyone notice they just posted up the new 70 watt versions of the H4 and H13?

    They are offering an $80 trade in of your old bulbs for the new style. But the new style 70 watt bulbs are $249. Kinda pricey, but I'd like to see them in action.

    Hmm... interesting. They sent me a free replacement for my old ones that went bad. So I can send them those ones for the discount and keep the new replacements... It would still be another $170 which is more then I paid for the first set.

    I'm interested to see how the 70W versions perform. Would these be too bright in standard headlight housings? They say they are 3200 lumen on the low beam where the cheaper ones are only 2000 lumen. That is a big increase. Then compare that to a silverstar ultra which claims less than 1000 lumen on the low beam.

    yes
    Just going to have to wait for some reviews to see how they work. Total lumen increase is nice, but how well the LEDs function with the headlight housings is more important. I'm hoping that the LED housing changes improve the size and weight distribution, and that people see better results at distance.
