It's quite difficult with night driving on those tints especially because the ANHC lights are quite weak.I am planning to change it to super white H4 philips bulbs soon, that should help.Any other suggestions on lights are welcome!
hi
The stock headlamps are very weak. Had to put in a xenon lamps soon after the service otherwise it was a bit dangerous to see in the nite and specially on the highway with these lights.

The stock headlights on ANHC is not too powerful to begin with and as my windshield is also heavily tinted, its not too safe to drive with the stock headlights.

I heard xenon lamps dont do much in terms of lighting up the road?Has it been more comfortable driving with xenons than stock lights?

But tell me why your front windshield is HEAVILY tinted man , this is not safe right ? why did you get this done ? Without tints and clear glass, i feel the headlights are not enough on the highway. I dont drive more than 80kmph when its dark to be on the safer side.

Default regarding xenon lights

Regarding the question on effectiveness of xenon lights, they are by far superior to traditional halogen headlamps most cars have. Not only do they allow you to see farther, but they do a much better job of illuminating the periphery.

Some of the newer cars have motorized headlamps that turn in the direction in which your car is turning to allow you to see around bends better.

Real xenon upgrades will probably require you to replace the entire headlamp assembly, not just the bulb. Don't be fooled by blue colored bulbs - not the real deal.

Its always better to upgrade it to 100/90 W halogen (philips rally series offer maximum light in rains according to accessory shops). if upgrading to xenon get a low colour temperature bulb (3000-4000k) or you might have problems in rain/wet roads.
