I agree.  The light from the single-bulb halogen headlights in my
'88 90 Quattro is pitiful.  The (standard) driving lights help
a bit, but I still get jittery driving back roads at night whose
road paint has faded or is hidden beneath winter schmutz.

I would love to have the headlight cleaner jets that come on the '89+

Will upping the wattage of the headlights have an adverse effect on
the electrical system??
