The issue with the AlpineMSS is basically it's a HID bulb and not an actual LED bulb so not only does it run hot but overtime your rings and housing might turn yellow from all the heat that it generates. I know owners of other models with this kit have had concerns about the heat.
Exactly. It's the design of the rings that's key to light conductivity. The "old" ones are not effective and you lose most of the luminance of the LED's, plus the daylight argument.

Obviously, if your light source is bright enough, you will see it fine in the daylight even if it has the same Kelvin number as daylight.
