So, you want to see photometric compliance reports on these "bulbs" in a range of factory lamp assemblies? Is that what it'll take? I'll see if I can find any I can share with you (for proprietary...

No, they're not a fix. The factory lamps are in full compliance with the applicable regulations. When you second-guessed the engineers that designed this lamp by installing toy bulbs, you in effect...

The lamps are designed for particular replaceable light sources. Changing the light source changes the output of the lamp at every test point on the range. If the output is out of compliance at ANY...

If the bulb is different to the point that it changes the pattern of the lamp, it's illegal (and it doesn't require much of a change).

As before, those regulated exterior lighting functions all...

But it really is how it works. There's a lot of case law out wherein 49 CFR Part 571 and various State laws on vehicle lighting are in conflict and the Federal Law is used to decide the case.

LOL: More LOL @ 75W.
For one, the DOT doesn't "approve" things, and if the manufacturer does not certify that it's compliant with FMVSS 108, you're essentially driving around without headlamps. ...

"Made them similarly", or tried to copy the design illegally?

If I want a Rolex, I'll buy a Rolex. If I'm not willing to pay for a Rolex, I won't wear a fake-- I'll just go get a Timex instead.

If the product is designed to replace the regulated motor vehicle equipment, but does not conform to FMVSS 108, the product is illegal. Saying "off road" all you want does not change this at all.

He'll probably send it to Calcoast-ITL for testing. That's what I'd do. So, send Hilldweller the lamps, and sufficient money to cover the photometric, mechanical, and environmental testing.
