No surprise here. Been known for quite sometime (hidplanet), but thanks for doing the tests.

However do note that the factory high beam bulb is 60W.

I bet you're enjoying that huge amount of light that the HIDs throw inside the high beam. I sure am. It's amaze(ballz).

I might throw in 70W HIDs into my high beams for the heck of it.

Thanks for the correction on the HB3 wattage. I've read through most of the lighting related threads and your testimony convinced me to go with the 55W HID in the highs. I'm gonna hit some back roads tonight to test them out. One of my bulbs flickers while it's warming up (fine once warm) so I might need to do some troubleshooting to see if it's a bulb or ballast.

What ballasts are you using ON2? (incase I need to return these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FC22DNS/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 )

I'm using this kit in my high beams. It has served me well and I highly abuse my lights. I'm always flashing it and trying to damage it purposefully, but it won't die. These are solid. Great construction. The ignitor is separate (inline with the harness) but it doesn't bother me.

The point of high beams is to have the most light output when needed therefore I have 4300K in there. It is straight white with no hint of blue whatsoever for maximum lumens.

The initial startup/cold start is bright enough to flash. Full operation takes about 10 seconds.
