Same lighting element is in use so it would be normal useage as far as lifetime is concerned.I'm wondering how much extra wear is caused by flashing to pass on the HIDs, with them off of course, if at all.
Don't understand this question. Pulling the stalk back flashes the high-beams. Pushing forward turns on the high-beams and keeps them on. There is only one bulb in the HID system. When the high-beams are activated a motor moves the entire projector assembly up and down. That is why there is a momentary delay, and you can hear it move as well.bonus: why does it only blip on for a split second instead of stay open?
