That does change my opinion that HIRs on a newly designed car are a copout. You are making 75% of the light of an HID for 90% of the price. Then you are passing that cost on the the consumer down the road who will have to replace those bulbs every 1-2 years. As we all know GM makes cars for people who are too stupid to know when to turn their lights on, and so the lights will simply be on all the time.
If you haven't picked up on it by now I'm NOT a fan of GM. I hope I live long enough to see them go bankrupt again and not get rescued.
