RE: Lights

Where did the notion that the regular aero Euro lights have "compromised
performance" come from and what's the reference point? The step up from
the US lights to the Bosch Euro lights I now have was immense and was
finished off nicely by relays and 80/100 H4s and 130 H3s, thank you. All
this cost me more than what it would have from Metrix, but I didn't know
about them back then and it's still worth every cent.

How much would a complete setup of "better" lights cost, BTW?
