    People with these stupid lights should be shot. They bother on coming cars and look ridiculous on that Plymouth.

    I see fine with my old lamps

    My only issue is the pulsing I have with my lights. Don't do much night driving in the car, so I never chased it down.

    Those lights looks wrong on that car.

    Just looks WRONG on that car, to me. Almost like it's in a cartoon.

    Are those "halos" the DRL? With the low beams having an HID projector beam in the middle?

    Get into the street rod area of things and you can find normal headlight diameters with "halo DRL" lights and such. And, of course, don't forget about the "Air Catcher" lights on the SRT Challenger!

    Many of the newer headlights (projector beams) are aimed too low, by observation, for good high speed night driving. Nothing like the Euro-spec Cibie or SEV-Marchall headlights. Headlight performance is more about beam pattern/use than extreme brightness, by observation.

    Dum..da...da..da....dum....
    Like the new (er) Corvette we saw at the cruise the other night..
    Looked like a freakin' Christmas tree changing colors under the chassis, in the wheels and around the headlites....and it was parked!!!! The owner wasn't a kid, but a guy in his 60's.

    An exterior version of the "Ambient Light" option on the newer Camaros? The ambient light bars in the interior cycle through a range of colors on cue, on those cars.

    I guess if your car already is faster than only a handful of other production cars, "lights" are the new "show" option? Underhood items are now all covered with sight shields and injector noise absorbers.

    OK, this thread is good timing to something I saw last night.
    I saw a new Silverado Midnight Edition. The name needs no explanation.
    It's where the manufacturer blacks out every inch of brightwork at a Premium price.
    What did the owner do? Slap on every chrome appliqué known to man over the entire truck. :BangHead:
