    Would have to agree, I've never found the headlights to be as bad as everybody else seems to say. I reckon it's really just an excuse to let them justify the expense of modding their cars with HIDs!

    never drove, but been in plenty of cars with really good headlights. a comparison is needed to prove the headlights not that bad. obviously, compared to the likes of HID's , the standard vectra halogens are inferior, but back to my original point, the standard lights not THAT bad !

    depends what k rating you have, if you're on 6000k then I doubt you will get one. I put some brilliant white H1s in the main beam in when I was running 6000k but they were next to useless. I'm on 4750k HID with Osram nightbreakers in ... loads more light and a tiny bit whiter matching the hids well
