    Same here, switched in 2016 I think - no issues at all. The _only_ things that were of note:

    - took awhile to get them adjusted such that oncoming cars didn't flash their high-beams at me... either they were aimed too high, or the dispersal is not as tight
    - dispersal... not as focused (with what I got), or at least that is the feel that I get.

    Having said that, the sheer amount of light dispersed, esp. on lonely country roads (with deer), or the NJ Barrens... cannot beat it.
    @Ohendo, still very much loving those turn signals!

    Awesome....but it was @FinalImpact who turned me on to those lights. Speaking of which...the stalks on them don't have much flexibility. Found out the hard way, while pulling into my garage I brushed up against a trash can. Broke the right front stalk cleanly, dangling by the wiring. Currently have it back to together with some strong tape. Pondering leaving it that way vs spending another $100 on a replacement!

    ^^ That's a bummer!

    Can you fab something from aluminum sheet and secure to the colored plate, then form a right angle with a hole in it under the mount. Or maybe SS as it would flex longer without breaking....

    Yes, those lights coupled with switchback circuit.... Almost modern'ish! Too bad they don't flex!
