This is a standard modification in the UK. I have such a harness on my car -
they're available from BR Motorsport and cost around GBP49.95 - $65? Don't
bother going back to the battery - go straight to the alternator output post.
Yes, it makes a _BIG_ difference, even on stock bulbs.
It also allows you to run 170/100 H4s with 100 H1s. Fixes the ur-quattro
visibility problem _UTTERLY_.
