I just tested the XP50 (narrower version of the XP80) in my wife's Vibe, in our black hole of a driveway. Very white and bright lights, making the area much easier to see! I expect the XP80s for my Solstice to make the same improvement.

Installed the XP80s tonight, turn the car on, put it in reverse - no light.
Pulled the tail lights out, again, reversed the LED bulbs, put it back together, and tested in a dark garage. Very bright, white light; way better than the bulbs I took out.

It was nice meeting you last week!

Did you take any before/after pictures? The XP80's are 100 lumens brighter than the XP50's due to the 921 bulb size being smaller

They do not disappoint

We can sell you one bulb, but you'll have to give us a call to place the order: (314) 205-3033

Thanks,

My camera doesn't have a fixed f-number/shutter speed setting, and also does auto-white balance, so any differences would probably be canceled by the camera, or made very subtle, at best.
