Why you shouldn't buy an old bulb (used or N.O.S.)?
If you were to buy an N.O.S. (new old stock) bulb from a vendor at a swap meet, the going price per bulb would almost equal what we charge for our complete set. And what the vendor doesn't tell you is that when you go to energize your newly purchased N.O.S. bulb, it may instantly burn out, or is certainly destined for a very short life. Obviously, this is also true of bulbs purchased from junk yards.
The reason is simple. These bulbs were not designed to last 40-50 years. What happens to these bulbs (even never used bulbs) is that over time, they can develop cracks in the varnish (seal) on the back of the bulb. Once a crack develops, air can enter the bulb (which is under a sealed vacuum), and the filament will instantly burn out when power is applied.
Why do we sell our bulbs in complete sets (not individually)?
In order for our T-3® headlight bulbs to be street legal and sold in the U.S.A., they had to be manufactured to meet or exceed the current U.S. federal highway safety and lighting standards. Consequently, our T-3® bulbs are manufactured to be about 25% brighter than the original bulbs. They do not project the typical dim, yellow cast as the original bulbs did; leading to difficult night time driving. (For those of you who are concerned about having your car judged, the level of bulb "brightness" is not a judging criteria - but at least you'll be able to see when you drive.) If you were to replace only one bulb, you would instantly notice the difference in brightness when placed side-by-side to an old original bulb.
