Well that would ONLY Apply if you were using STOCK US lights. Those of
use with the Hi Watt lights are using Euro's, and Yes I have done a side
by side Controlled camparo and the when you Upgrade the Euro's 55/60 H4's
to 90/130 H4's are almost TWICE as bright and just as well controlled.
This test was done using Grey Scale Targets and my VERY Expensive Light
Meters that I use everyday in my work........ As it is no driver on the
road has YET to flash or complain about my lights.....
