And that would leave me with just my useless low beams for 99% of my 85
commute - or the option to be an asshole, which is one many people chose.
That's why one needs H4 lights - to get useful unoffensive light on the
road all the time. Which is where my and Mr. Riebs' response to "driving
lights give me the same result" came from. Part of my point is also that
what you wrote above is something that many people need to be told.
