A little while ago, I got my hands on a set of GM's HID bulbs for
the '97 STS. They produce quite a bit more light than a typical Halogen
low beam, yet they only draw 1 (yes, one) amp of current at 12V.
Furthermore, they are relatively tolerant of voltage fluctuations. They
produce almost the smae light at 10V as they do at 14V. Probably because
they have a high voltge transformer, that acts like a voltage reegulator.
