I see your point, usually people don't have their brights on for a long period of time

The brights alone would be fine, but the "flash to pass" would be too much. That uses all the filaments.

I understand that, I'm saying with this mod you still wouldn't have all the filaments lit for a long period of time.

I'm basing that on the fact that I don't use my brights all the time, and when I do they don't stay on for a long period of time, so even though this mod keeps both filaments lit, they wouldn't be like that for a long time

Another thought: wouldn't this be easier for the low beam filament not having to go off and on all the time? The 02+ Expos keep the low beam filament lit all the time (I know they're 2 separate bulbs), my mom has never had an issue with that

I wonder if I can run a set up like the EXPO and use the corners as full blinkers?
