I know what you mean... For that exact reason... I had retrofitted my previous two cars with HID projectors.Off-road lights are great, but they are a pain to turn on and off (dim) for normal highway driving at night. Law enforcement hates them and they will ticket you in heart beat. I try not to chase too much at night, for multiple reasons, but traveling at 70mph on rural Texas highways in the dark, with black cows and possible debris on the road requires good headlamps. (A chaser was once killed when he hit a black cow at night). The Xterra headlamps are criminal. Seriously, they are crap. Most pick-ups, like the Ranger, have very good headlamp design, or so I'm told. Need to stay on subject here as I got a OP citation for accidently posting off topic.
