Just because you took 1 photo with one much much thicker than the others, does not a comparison make. I'm happy to have ANYONE with Titaniums come to our shop, we'll do all the work, they'll do all the picture taking and we'll easily settle it. Alabama - that's not a difficult drive, it's an overnight trip
I would agree with you about the pictures not being impartial in the first posts as they seemed to not show what type of conditions the pictures were taken.

Only issue that I would question is that the picture shows both kits in the day and shot from the same angle. If it was just one headlight compared to another single headlight, then I would agree that the photo could be manipulated in favor of one or the other, but in this case I think both kits are giving equal show opportunity.

Anyways, I think they both look nice and this just gives them a fair side by side comparison!

Wow, there IS a point where these things become too bright. Almost looks like the headlights are on, not some DDEs.

I think you're point is well made, but it's not about sensitivity.

With the exception of Auburn - although I'm not sure what his actual alternative agenda is - the only people that should be on another vendor's threads are the vendors that sell that product.

Leif is an employee of a competitor, and thus has no business on this thread. If he wants to make his own, he has to pay for sponsorship AND he has to make his own thread. It's typical and indicative of the person he works for to do this type of tactics.

Unique - while posting something somewhat sensible STILL should not be on this thread. That's all.

As to "sensitivity" - no, the Predator Chromium are the brightest by FACT, not by goofy gimmicks of camera actions.

The IMPARTIAL images posted on the first page - in my mind - show the many lacking qualities of the competitor's product MORE SO than they show the lack of brightness which I still dispute as I have them here in the office and they are simply not brighter, THICKER YES! Brighter, no.

A camera cannot tell the differences accurately, it's only a factual chromameter and a visual side by side that makes a difference. When you do those, the Chromiums are brighter (we use higher intensity CCFL) and they are more long lasting. That's it, QED.

I can - as I have shown with the picture of the girl squating near the car - make ANYTHING look the same by setting exposure, setting focal/focus point, and setting aperture. Heck, I can make an LED in the same picture look 3X brighter than a CCFL with some good photoshop and camera tricks.

Anyways, it's the old coke versus pepsi in some ways except that in this case, it's more like ice cold coke versus luke warm pepsi.

No problem. Honestly, I don't have time for these fights anymore, I don't even know what time I had in the first place.

Just come visit our shop, we'll be happy to show you all there is to show. Thanks for looking.

Sorry about that, a member, who works for a company thought it was alright to start posting in thread and about his competition. It was late and I either removed your thread on accident or it was in reference to one of that members posts.

No one (besides trolls and spammers) get banned without warning
