Sorry tint connaisseurs, all 6000K!
... I'd rather have a selective yellow fog lamp, but nobody makes a selective yellow LED phosphor. There's no such thing as an LED that puts out selective yellow light.
Unless this is a new product, these cost over $700 each at Rallylights.com. The Bi-Xenon is under $500 each. BTW, the Bi-Xenon module works great! Plenty of light to drive at night without high beams
and no oncoming driver ever flashed us because the lights were bothering them.
Unless you're keeping your speeds at about 50mph or below (and 50mph is pushing it!), you're overdriving your low beams. You need to use high beams when it's appropriate-- there is no low beam that eliminates the need for high beams.
It's almost never a good idea to use only low beams at divided-highway speeds.It is almost never a good idea to use high beams on a divided highway like an interstate.

Yes, you'll be dipping your beams more often, but when you're going 88 to 110 feet per second, going with low beams only is a bad idea.
It's a divided highway, with a lot of separation between the lanes. Dip your beams on that approaching traffic (at about 800 feet if they're approaching, and 300 feet if you're coming up on somebody)-- and in general,
The 90mm bi-xenons are great; I agree.We already drive anywhere between 5 and 15 MPH under the posted speed limit. My dimmer switch would break from using it so much if I turned off my high beams every time there is opposing traffic. Almost all of the driving with this vehicle is on I-80 between Iowa and California. Even though there is separation between the lanes we still got flashed pretty regularly when using the high beams.
My whole reason for upgrading to the Hella Bi-Xenon modules was to get better low beam performance, and the low beam performance is night and day from my previous Cibie lights. If I wanted to drive with high beams all the time I wouldn't have upgraded as the Cibie lights worked great in high beam mode.
The high beams on the Hella Bi-Xenon modules suck
There is more light higher up which tends to obscure the driver's vision.
I tried to get the Hella Bi-Xenon modules optically aimed at a truck body shop, but for some reason they could not get their optical aimer to work with my headlamps.
I ended up aiming them myself using Daniel Stern's method.

What kind of vehicle do you have them installed in?
