In case something ever goes wrong and you have to reopen the lights, you have spares so you can take your time.

If you are getting the morimoto mini h1s make sure you do the pre install preparation which involves taking them apart, and sanding down the plunger so it never sticks.

Mine worked flawlessly out of the headlight, but now (it only happens when I am showing my lights off against a wall when they first warm up) if I pull the light switch back to flash the high beams, my driver side one stays engaged in high beam mode. Eventually switching back and forth makes it raise the shield again. I took them apart, and lubed them up but I did not sand them down.

Now I wish I did.
Well I always take the advice of people that have walked the path before me so I think I will keep them. +1 for the linkage, always helpful!
If you can't wear it out, burn it off
