Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I'm using it in the overhead dome (ford focus mk2).
It's about as bright as (and much whiter than) the original bulb but at a fraction of the energy/heat emission.
Works fine around freezing temperature (~0°C, 273Kelvin, this winter hasn't grown very cold yet...).
Cons:
The metal ends reach over the glass cylinder, which makes it very prone to accidental shorting in the tight compartment where it's fitted on a Ford Focus Mk2, I blew a fuse real quick while fiddling to get it into position.
I ended up wrapping a narrow strip of paper around the middle of the lamp for better control when fitting it.
Other:
Bottomline:
I would buy it again, and just be very careful to avoid shortage when fitting it.
