thats what it looks like here too but its been such a warm winter it melts before too long. ive only had to use the snow blower once this year, usually we have a good foot of base snow by now with a bunch of big drifts that dont go away.

i dont see a pic?

and mouse, definitely spring on the digi ballasts. there is no "light bounce" at all with my new ones, no flicker when you first turn them on and on top of that, there is next to no warm up time. best $38 ever spent lol.

seller i got them off of has a 1 year warranty and he asked me via email if they worked last night. seems to be a cool guy.

somehow theyre brighter than the old ones too. still 6000k but they seem to shine farther in every direction. i had to re aim my headlights lol.

I haven't need my snow blower yet this year. The biggest snow fall we had. I had to use the broom on the sidewalk.

That'* okay with me. It'* been nice being able to do oil changes not lying in the snow.

If I get new ones, I'll get them from DDM Tuning so I get a lifetime warranty. My current ones don't flicker when they turn them on, never have. Well, my DDM one doesn't. The driver side is acting kinda wonky, but it'* not a DDM.

What do you mean by "light bounce"?

i think its because i dont run a relay, honestly. but with my old ballasts the driver side would bounce about a 1/4" up and down all the time. you couldnt see it unless you pulled right up to a garage door or something. but these are rock solid with no relay.
