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

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...).
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.
I would buy it again, and just be very careful to avoid shortage when fitting it.
