In my type 44 the dual Euro lights kick the but of my Porshce 911's 
single Eurolight system.

The lens on the Audi is excellent. Very sharp cut off line, and I can 
spot deer in the woods miles away when the high beam is on. :)

All I am running is standard 55/60 bulbs, but I have 4 individual 
relays, one for  each headlight, so I could use higher wattage. Wouldn't 
  the higher heat destroy the reflective coating though?
