    Minor things really...

    1. I don't have Xenons and find that the standard headlights seem very dim compared to the lights I had on my 2.8 80Q which had great lights. I was expecting the lighting to be even better. I have checked and the dipped beems do come on but they just don't seem to light the road very well. Is this normal? The car has just had an MOT so I assume that they are aimed correctly /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I'd love to convert to Xenons but don't have the lense pressure washers so assume it would be illegal.

    2. I also have standard suspension and the car sits very high. Can I just add the sport prings to lower the car or do I have to change the shocks too. I don't really want a hard and harsh ride though as I travel over pretty bumpy roads most of the time. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Thanks Snail. Have you any experience of which bulbs may be better?

    Anyone else here tried different bulbs with success?

    Pretty much. I think VAG parts are doing some HID kits which will give a similar appearance to xenons.
