If I saw you coming the other way at night, and there was no one else
in range, you would enjoy all 540 watts.

I cannot _STAND_ the prats who drive around with their front fogs on
in non-foggy conditions.  Do they know _nothing_ about geometry?

For the terminally clueless - fogs are mounted well below the driver's
eyeline so that the beams they produce do not illuminate fog between the
driver's eyes and the object - the road.  In order to illuminate the
road at much the same distance as dipped lights, they are set _MUCH_
more aggressively - only about 1/3rd of the drop angle.  This means they
are much more likely, per watt, to blind an oncoming driver than dipped

If you _must_ drive with front fogs, FFS buy a BMW!
