Here's the video from their page with info about the one that fits our Seca II. Their led mimics the filaments from the H4 bulb and doesn't have an external driver/resistor box like the ones in the previous video.

Looks super similar to one they mention in my previous linked video at 26:48. Granted I think they're testing with a 9007 not a 9003 so there's a 2 Philips LED difference there. I'm glad to see newer styles are forcing designs to have a more true to filament style, it's definitely something to look out for.

Like pictured here:

I'm looking forward to my GTR bulb to arrive so I can do a good comparison and have a nice write up posted here for others.

Edit: Here's another clip I found at 3:06 where they compare that one with a couple others, it looks like it performs a tad higher than halogen in their testing, a bulb or two after that though is where they show the GTR bulb I've got on the way. Super excited to see how it turns out when it arrives for this style bulb we have (H4/9003) and how it works with our light housing.
If I only had an hour to live I would spend it at work, because in there an hour feels like an eternity.

Sounds great! Yeah, I'm glad to see the LED bulbs' technology progressing too. Especially when they make it simulate an H4 so that it can easily replace the halogen bulb without blinding the oncoming drivers. Oh and by the way, on those bulbs, they only work correctly one way, the way you're showing in that picture. When I installed mine, I was kinda disappointed when I didn't get the results others did. Then a co-worker pointed out that it's upside down. Doh, It worked much better after installing correctly.
