Looking for opinion on Solaris Ultrabright; people that own them, plesae chime in

I've heard of the new bulbs that solaris manufactured, called the Ultrabright Edition. They're a new kind of concealed bulb, but solaris claims they are three times as bright and do not emit as much heat as their previous bulbs.

My previous problem with the solaris bulbs I owned stemmed from two things. The fact that they would burn my corners (depos) because they released far to much heat, and that they were too dim during daytime driving.

Does anyone have experience with these new Ultrabright Edition bulbs and if they indeed remedy those two problems?

I would very much like to purchase them as I love the color they emit, as long as it is bright enough and not too hot!

You can view them on Bimmian's website as well as Jlevi in the lighting section.

We have tested these in several applications and so far they have not produced any issues as far as melting the corners or overheating. Bimmian does back the product against such defects so you will not have to worry about any issues in the future either.
