We all love the look of classic sealed beam headlights, but the dim halogen light output makes nighttime driving a potentially risky endeavor for you and your beloved classic. Holley's new RetroBright LED Headlights offer a number of advantages over traditional sealed beam headlights such as...
If you're up in the air about updated headlights and the end result with them Consider doing the headlight relay upgrade,it puts direct battery power to your headlights instead of the power coming from the fuse Box.Is that results in a much brighter headlight. In my experience putting an H4 style bulb in these cars isn't that much brighter With everything else in stock form.
Everyone had their reasons, and, I take the opinion generally that anyone should be able to do whatever they want to the car they own unless it's some irreplaceable piece of history somehow.
I just implore those that do go down the road do it responsibly. If you're shining light further out, that means the beams are higher up. That blinds drivers coming close to you, depending how its aimed can be worse sometimes than it needs to be as well. So keep that in mind, along with everything else.
But you're right, to some limited degree a clear new glass bulb lens has some increased efficiency over one thats had a decade of grit and bug impact abrasion. Massive? Not usually. But, not all bulbs are made equal to others either, just like not all conversions are equal to others when it comes to keeping light where it matters and away from where it's a hazard.
All lights should aim slightly to the right and slightly down so we're not all blinding each other. A lot of my cruising is done on long, single lane, semi-rural roads so I definitely don't want to punish the oncoming drivers. Studies show drivers will tend to drift into excessively bright light.
Yeah, best guess is they are using a poorly designed switch mode power supply circuit that turns the headlight wiring into an antenna for the noise coming out of the power supply. Doesn't effect me as I primarily use XM in the Pontiac, but I cant recommend them to anyone simply because if that glaring of a design defect is okay to the manufacturer, what other issues were also considered okay.
