Here is mi report of those lights after 10 months of work:
I have those lights on my bike:( http://24x7diy.com/product_info.php/cPath/23_45/products_id/34) and they fail after 10 months using them about 20 minutes every morning on my way to work aproximately 73 hours, two leds on each lamp burnout at the same time, i email the company on India where i get them and the say that LED's fail only for overheating, and this is not the case on mine because i mount them under the mirrors , finaly i end having to buy from them the LED's that cost  $62.00 and replacing  by myself, now they work fine again , when i did the work find that there was not enough heat sink compound  betwen the LED's and the heat sink plate to transfer the heat and due to that they overheat and fail, i think that there is not a good  customer service from this place so i do not recomend to any body  to buy from this place


Thanks for the info as I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on getting some LED Driving lights. Now I'm going to have to re-evaluate who (24x7diy or ADVmonster) I'm going to purchase from. I still may go with 24x7diy, but if I do, I'll open them up and check and add the heat sink compound if needed. Heck... no matter who I go with I'm going to check the heat sink compound.

I'd go with the MondoMotos MM10 bullets...check out the ADV forum vendor section, or here.....http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=10701.msg135769#msg135769

I do a LOT of night time driving, so IMHO the MondoMotos MM10 bullets are not as powerful as I'd like.

I'm looking at these for my driving light needs. :
ADVmonster Model 60 - http://stores.advmonster.com/-strse-41/Model-60-LED-off/Detail.bok
or
24x7DIY's 4 LED 3100Lm - http://24x7diy.com/product_info.php/products_id/172

I'll be looking at the MM10's (and others in this lumen range) later for when I do the fog lights.
