Clarke,

I am really interested in your perception of glare produced by the lights vs. focused beam. I am NOT saying there is a problem. After all they do have SAE DOT and CE stamped on the lens, but that concerns me, because unless the standards have changed you can’t be both DOT and CE, it’s a different pattern,

Long time ago, I railed against folks putting aftermarket kits in existing housings, because almost all of them produced an insane amount of glare. Things have certainly improved since then.

Looking at the pics, it appears there is a very nice and distinct cutoff line on the side of
Tom’s house. That is very impressive and looks to be more of an ECE pattern than a DOT pattern.

If these don’t produce the glare then it is a fantastic solution for motorhome in general because the LED lights are not subject to the poor output from low voltage that incandescent bulbs experience.

Looking forward to your comments on your perception of the lights when you stand in front of the coach as an oncoming car would experience.

Jon, I followed the instructions which came with the lights. The two inside lights are wired for high beam only, while the outside lights work on high and low beam, just like the old ones.
