    BMW Develops Laser Headlight Technology
    And thereā€™s no risk to humans, animals or wildlife when used in car lighting. This is mostly due to the light not being emitted directly, but initially converted into a form that is suitable for use in road traffic. The resulting light is very bright and white.

    I just wonder how long they last and can they be changed by the owner. Most likely it will require very specific tools and specs. The Halogens on my car burn out at a rate of about 1 every 6 months. I have to practically take my entire front end apart to replace them. Give me the old days when you just pulled the old bulb and housing straight out, unplugged it and replaced it.
