    IIHS test of headlamp performance

    Surprise, surprise, Ford received a rating of "Good" for headlight performance from IIHS on one of their vehicles, the 2021 Bronco Sport with LED projectors for high and low beams. Are these headlamps sourced from Hella...

    Putco recalls bulb-shaped LED toys

    An audit of NHTSA was initiated in August 2020. Hopefully this will lead to more attention from NHTSA on aftermarket LED bulbs, among other things. https://www.oig.dot.gov/library-item/37974...

    Pendant/stud mount LED aux reverse light?

    Is it necessary to buy a separate grommet? One is already included with the 820KC-10 lamp, along with a 817-48 weather tight plug. Peterson 421-18 grommet: https://www.pmlights.com/products.cfm?cId=4&fId=17&pId=728 817-48 plug: https://www.pmlights.com/products.cfm?cId=5&fId=20&pId=3862

    Recall on Diode Dynamics retrofit LED bulbs

    I don't see this as "stomping" on DD. It is more like a slap on the wrist. They were not fined. I predict vey few people will return their LEDs for halogen bulbs, and therefore the costs to DD will be relatively low. I agree NHTSA should be going after the "big dogs" like Amazon, eBay...

    GIANT reflector for custom motorcycle

    The Cibie and Lightforce you mention are long distance auxiliary driving lamps, and I can't imagine them working well as a motorcycle headlight. Will you be using the motorcycle on public roads ?

    High beams always on? Sounds like a recipe for increasing nighttime road rage incidents, with resulting deaths and injuries.

    Halogen H18 and H19

    The post is still there, as #11. Yes, it sounds like it was written by Virgil, or perhaps D. Stern. But it would be surprising to me if either was a member at hidplanet. That would be like sleeping with the devil. :D
