Those look wicked bright!

Plan CStill working on this set of problems. One, got 100 watt replacements for the fog light bulbs (yellow CREE), got more expensive polarized and tinted clip-ons, have a new eye exam coming up and today got THESE (https://www.ebay.com/itm/2X4-200W-CREE-LED-Pods-Fog-Work-Light-Bar-Spot-Flood-3000K-Driving-Off-Road-ATV/163751731737?hash=item26205d2219:g:46YAAOSwpqddFd6W) to mount under the bumper. I cannot give up going to Contra Dances.
I have the same problem in my 20-year-old car. Some people has such bright bulbs that my high beam looks like parking lights. I become completely blind. I don't know what to do and cannot drive on rainy nights. Also I prefer not to drive on nights at all which very impact my activities.like the above, i'd check that the lenses are clear. the plastic one's on my w210 are a bit oxidized and i'm sure this costs lumens.
doesn't help that inconsiderate drivers "upgrade" to illegally bright bulbs or just drive around with their high beams... to be honest, some new cars low beams seem like high beams to me. i'd like to see some sort of safety check here in california (like hawaii) that measures lumens, bet some wouldn't pass.
i'm only 49 and getting to the point i prefer to drive rather than ride my motorcycle at night...
I'll check but I think that they are sealed beams on mine. My next appt at my mechanic has him replacing the bulbs in the fog lights and installing 200 watt spots under the bumper to go on with the fogs. I have, before that, an eye doctor appt to upgrade my prescription, or, if they find early cats, arrange to get THAT part(s) fixed.^ I stand corrected. Which brings me to my next points: are the reflectors in the back of the headlights in good shape and are you using the correct bulbs? Discolored or corroded reflectors won't, um, reflect as much light forward, and if you're using "not the right ones but they fit" bulbs, the focal point of the light might not match the focal point of the reflector's parabola.
Thanks for the suggestion. I looked but they do not have glass ones with LED, which is my preference.
I checked this site out & have 2 questions. 1 do these fit in the 87 sec? 2 is there a price, as I could not find one. They look like good lights if they may work
If you're running the standard North American large ( 5x7") rectangular sealed beams, then I'd say yes. As for price I know that Amazon has them listed at $290.00 Cad each.I checked this site out & have 2 questions. 1 do these fit in the 87 sec? 2 is there a price, as I could not find one.
