Has anyone had any experience with the 90w Assassin Great 90w White driving lights?
They look the same as the Great White LED lights.

Check the weight of these lamps before you mount them. They don't like corrugations much. HID is still my choice of lamp.

Can't help you with the brand, but I have Vision X Transport Series. They are very well built and the mounting system is excellent.

I'm not sure if all brands do it but, I was able to stipulate what pattern I wanted in each light. Drivers side is all 10 degree spot, the passenger side has the outer 11 LED's set to 40 Degree spread and the remaining center 7 are 10 degree spot.

I'm not sure about them not being able to handle corrugations, mine have done ok so far.

I really don't understand the need for HID's I don't need to see 5 k's down the road. The LED's put out plenty of light for about 400 mt's, they also give very good side light.

Eva,
I've got both. The HIDs are cheaper , brighter and draw less power. Other than that the LEDs win hands down.

Nice piece of hyperbole there Eva......"don't need to see 5k's down the road."

Few weeks back, I dipped my lights for an oncoming truck. Turns out he was 40 clicks away at the time! :-)

Like Bob, I've got both LED light bar and HID driving lights. Can't beat the combination of the 2 types for easy night driving with almost no eye strain, and being able to see almost everything, both on the road, and to each side.

Have been using Great Whites and Peak "Explorers" on trucks at the moment. They're both good but the Peak may be just a bit brighter, even though they are smaller in diameter than the GW's.

The only problem I can see(pun not intended) with these u-beaut lights is that one has to dip much earlier than with the old halogens. Though there's still the odd bloke who doesn't dip until he can read your number plate!

Led lights are pretty robust their being used more often on mining machinery these days.
