    I am one who has been on the factory fitted bulbs and will complete four years next week. To me, road visibility problem was there only when I drive on two-way road in the night that too due to light of oncoming vehicles, most who drive with high beam on. You can see the road better if you switch high beam/low beam when you feel that visibility is poor. But not of course to the face of oncoming vehicles. :).

    I do agree that 100/90W bulb will give better light, but I am just saying that the OEM is not that bad either.

    Yes fiatlover, those high beams of on coming traffic is a big big problem. On top of it, this rain, which does a bit more blurry vision. Had to stick in 60-80 yest. Phew...
    But one thing i am wondering is why the windsheild not glaring away the high beams? They should have made it an antiglare glass :(

    Anti-glare? Other than the cost, anti-glare coatings smudge easily and will never stand the elements of nature, on the long run.

    Here's it from the Punto's manual. It is the same as I posted earlier. Terminology is different but they mean the same.

    Ditto here. My Linea will be completing 4 years in less than 2 months with the factory-fitted bulbs. When I switch on the high beam, it gets lit along with the low beam bulb providing adequate illumination for me. :) I have never experienced any problem so far.

    Why was a cut out or a separate wiring harness required if you have used night breakers which is of the same wattage as the OEM bulbs?
