Well, don't be getting into bad habits BEFORE you take your test.

I plead the 5th.

No really, I promise I'm a safe driver, most of the time.

Why would a nightstalker be concerned with foglamps?

Sorry, DR, I have to disagree...Personally I'm always happy when when I see ladies with their razzle-dazzle fronts on...we usually just refer to it as "her brights are on" but I like your description.

If your eyes are bad, install higher power bulbs in the correct location and if that doesn't work, GET OFF THE FUCKING ROAD.
Two things you are over-looking:
1) US-spec cars came with different lamps than in Europe. Which I might add, are much.. MUCH more shitty in terms of quality. Performing a "bulb upgrade" will do NOTHING to increase lighting performance, because the optical performance of the US-spec lamps are sub-par.
2) Foglamps are foglamps, they are designed to emit a wide and short beam pattern that does little to glare other drivers. However, they shouldnt be used unless they're needed, because they dont add much *useable* light and waste a fair amount of electricity.
3) A driving lamp is not the same as a headlamp, which has low/high beam operation. By nature, a driving lamp has the same beam pattern as a high-beam. Driving lamps are typically used as a supplement with the high-beams.

But hey, if you cant understand the above... get off the fucking forum.

The fog/driving lights on my cadillac SRX are the brightest of any new car I have ever owned. They almost match the output of the low beams. No shit. Weird.
