For the twisty, steep, mountain roads I drive to and from our house daily,
these lights are just what the doctor ordered until the lense arrive from
Germany for the 100 model european headlights I have sitting in a box
waiting to be installed.  I wired them with a relay triggered off the high
beam lead to the right light.  They are useful, the way I have them aimmed
for additional brights.  I drove around with them on on the highway to see
if I'd get flashed by other drivers, but did not.  Now when I turn on the
high beams, the light ouput on the road actually looks like high beams.  As
a comparison, they are a bit brighter in appearance then the USA Audi V8
high beams in my wife's car.

I bought them in Portland at "GI Joes" which is a "Pep Boys" like store
except that it also has sporting goods.

I hope this helps.
