A big part of it for me is piece of mind - I don't want to deal with replacing these things....ever.
Again, it was just my opinion. Also, some of us don't have those options when it comes to lighting. For my car(pre facelift sedan) they don't have any OEM tail light upgrades that I can purchase. Yes, I can purchase the R/C/R but then I would have to fiddle around with the factory wiring since those are 7pin and mine is 6. So I'm in the same place. Yes I can get OEM clear corners and side markers, but those aren't so serious and they are just plastic(not like the tail lights which do involve wiring in the light itself)
