just to note: don't use these lights on the road around other cars. since each lamp has 2 bulbs, they are illegal (unless you already knew that!)

Yeah, they are bright, i wasn't planning on it. But if some S*it head decides to drive with off road lights on and doesn't turn them off, I'll light him up like a sun.

so if it only has one bulb (like hella 500ff's) they are legal?
