I got em.
I also installed Relays (50 Amp) on each headlight assembly, with a 
direct fused link to the battery. Took the load off the headlight high 
beam switch.
Now I have all four beams plus fogs if I want. Daylight!
I run 55W Low beams and 100W High Beams.
They are so much better. I also have the height adjuster and can raise 
them up a bit for running on country roads.

All the best
