    It was more the pre-facelift headlight design - it had an abrupt cut-off so didn't illuminate as far down the road as you'd like.

    As Duncan has said, the pre-facelift headlights were shocking. I replaced the bulbs with Osram Silverstars and that improved things a bit. My facelift Signum lights were much better and didn't need to be upgraded
