Only reason they are probably not DOT approved is because of the color temp. They are an OEM HID bulb. They produce the exact same output pattern/cutoff as Osram or any of their other products.
Out of the box, they are white. How they will look in 500 hours, and how the CBI would look after 500 hours, I do not know. The Ultinons might shift towards the light blue/purple hue I have seen online. The CBI might actually turn white instead of warm white. It'll take me 2+ years of driving to reach that many hours easily. I'd rather have bulbs that look good now, than wait years for them to look good. That's why I chose the Ultinons.
