    But to answer your implied question, yes, I like them. They are a lot brighter than the stock bulbs. Some people complain about them not lasting very long, and I agree with that. However, I seem to get 1-1.5 years out of mine, while others are claiming a few months. I always wear latex gloves while installing my bulbs and never let them touch anything.

    I also have them on every second of driving because it is so dark in the winter and illegal to have them off on the highway year-round up here.

    I had these last year. They were a little bit brighter then stock but they burned out in about 9 months so kinda a waste of money IMO
    i bought the cheap wally mart bulbs after them and installed them and havent burned out yet.

    I have been ZXE for about 6 months so far and I really like them.
