On a slightly different off-topic tangent , I like many others have the (crap) halogen lights. I recently replaced all 4 bulbs for dip and main beam with Osram Nightbreaker Plus bulbs (H7 55w) - there is a definite difference with these bulbs!

Night time driving is much better - but nowhere near as good as with Xenons. Still for 15 a pair you can't go wrong. A mere 30 sorts out the dipped and main beams with no danger of error codes or melted plastics.

By the way, the standard OEM dipped/main bulbs are Osram (but *not* Nightbreaker Plus), the Nightbreaker Plus bulbs give a much whiter light (and are less embarrassing, lol).
