    Sounds like standard Vectra headlights. HIDs are much better & light up the road & both verges which the standard lights fail 'dismaly' to do

    As above - aftermarket Xenons (HID's) are the ony way forward. People spend a small fortune trying all sorts of bulbs at 30 squid a time, but I took a gamble, splashed out of the HID kit and am glad I did now, as I can actually see where I'm going...

    My kit is the Vectra-C specific one from HID's Direct, but others are available...
