I actually find the lights really great, they have a nice cut off and don't blind oncoming traffic like a lot of the super bright HIDs. If you need further illumination I find that the high setting really helps, and with the auto dim it works nice on the highways. One thing for those of us who live where snow covers the roads 5 months of the year is that the very bright lights just wash out a lot of detail of the near field with all the reflection off the snowy surfaces. I think our lights are a decent comprimise for all the varying conditions in which the public drives. I wouldn't mind a brighter and wider, off road setting for rural driving.
