    Why in the world would you want to go back to incadescent bulbs? They are going to be unavailable after 2014 due to the phase-out of incadescent bulbs for environmental reasons. You'll be running tiny flouresent bulbs instead.

    Stock up on the incandescent bulbs....the LED's will not melt snow from your tail lights in the winter if you live in such a climate.

    Could be. I'm one of those crazy people who value function over cosmetics.
