This post is really just an observation. Whilst sitting at a traffic signal the other night, in my wife's Ford Fiesta, with Phillips xtremevision 100's insitu, a Toyota Camry of about 03-04 vintage pulled up beside me. Its lights were nothing short of atrocious. I wish I had a camera with me, but alas, I didn't even have a phone. The 8-10k kelvin HID's were throwing a bright shaft of light otf at about 30 degrees either side of straight ahead for each headlight. The pattern looked like a couple of X's on the road. I looked back at the pattern the Philips/Fiesta was putting on the road, and it was really chalk and cheese. I'd go so far as to say that the halogens were far better than these dreadful HID things. I wish I'd been driving towards this particular car, just to see what they were like from an approaching perspective !!
