I question the angle on those LED'* and how much they would make "hot spots" instead of actually spreading the light out.

true, i dunno if most ppl have had there cluster apart...its really weird what pontiac did to get the light to dispurse......i think that the LED'* would have no effect on hotspots because of the way the cluster is made

I think LED'* placed like those would make huge hotspots. But that is just my opinion.
