Re: xenon vs standard

Hi Ed,

Xenon can indeed be distinguished by the bluish tinge, as well as by a
thick convex lens in front of the bulb, behind the actual headlight glass.
This focuses the beam. Xenon lights are extremely effective, but are mostly
perceived as irritating by other drivers because of the high intensity.

Pianisten nemen altijd plaats achter de piano. Pianofabrikanten weten dat
en houden er ook rekening mee. Daarom zit het toetsenbord aan de achterkant.
Het is even zoeken, maar het went op den duur wel.
