Unfortunately there is no information about the beam spread, scatter, hot spots and dark spots, or presence of a good cutoff.
Yeah, they are brighter and use less power. Same with junk LED headlights.

The Holley RetroBrights look like a promising new product. I was asked for some input during their development—don't know whether or how well my advice was heeded. I expect to have samples in hand soon to scrutinise and evaluate. First impressions based on early-prototype test data: potentially very good low beam performance. High beam performance is more of an open question; probably not lousy, but maybe not excellent. I have some other questions and concerns that will be answered, one way or another, once I've got hands and eyeballs on 'em.

Glad to hear there is potential for these to be good. Thanks to all.

Interesting to see somebody make what looks like a serious effort at building LED headlights that don't scream "Look, I've got a set of LED headlights!" and just do their job. Can't wait to hear how they check out.
