You ever go up against King Richard (Petty) or Dale Earnhardt, Sr?
It'* a stock car superstition from "back in the day" (Remember, Im old)

Nice pics!!! I just want to know if those bulbs blow, is it as simple as repacing the bulb or the whole kit? one more, are you from Illinois?

You only have to replace the bulbs. Smellbird said they're like $100, but they're supposed to last like 5 years or something? Correct me if I'm wrong.

The bulbs should outlast the car - they last much longer because there is no filament. If it goes bad, you just replace the bulb.

It is possible for the ballast and/or the ignitor to go bad also, but that will usually only happen with abuse.

Yup, bulb should last forever. I think I figured 5 years if you drive 2 hours a day with them on. That'* a lot of hours. If the ballast goes out it'* probably because it'* defective.
As for the bulbs cost, I'm not sure on that. Probably depends on what number bulb and brand.
