RE: eurolight pattern?

	You may have Euro's, or maybe the newer 90's just have killer
lights that meet Euro and DOT specs since that is new enough that they
might.  I know the lights on my Dad's A6 are not Euro lights per say but
have a great low beam pattern.  I think the Euro's use a similar or same
unit though.  Great lights.
	Look on the lens and see if there is a DOT stamp or not.  That
will clear it up.

All this talk of eurolights raised a question in my mind.

The low beam pattern I see, if my '93 90S is facing a wall, is something
like this:

       /            /
______/      ______/

Is this the pattern, or similar to, the pattern of a eurolight?

I find this pattern to be well suited for night driving as it has a good
cutoff so that you aren't blinding oncoming traffic, and yet the
"kick-up" in the pattern on the right helps illuminate road signs and
critters in the ditch that are waiting to jump out in front of you.
