    The headlights on my Mercedes Benz are very bright. They're branded as an "LED Intelligent Light System"

    Modern LED technology and sophisticated light functions for best possible visibility in any situation: on country roads and motorways, when turning off, as well as in bends and in fog, the LED Intelligent Light System automatically adjusts to the prevailing conditions. LED technology generates a light colour which is similar to daylight and thus more pleasant on the driver's eyes. Lower energy consumption and the extremely long life of the bulbs are further advantages of this technology.

    Clever stuff. http://techcenter.mercedes-benz.com/...em/detail.html
    How does that compare to the lights on your Range Rover?

      I used to think people who drive round with only one headlight were dicks, especially as they could be mistaken for a motorcycle and you not realise how wide they are, but actually they are being really considerate and not dazzling oncoming cars.
      Thanks very much .

      I also find I get almost blinded from either oncoming or behind from cars with one headlight out which seems to double the intensity of the other one.
      What tends to happen is when one blows they put it on hi beam so they can still see.

      [QUOTE=Icy Gull;8328492]I have found night driving to be getting more difficult over the last couple of years. To the point that I avoid night driving where possible. A visit to the opticians revealed a slight cataract in my left eye which goes some way to explain it. I was also prescribed some drive safe Zeis lenses which make the glare much better, worth checking out if you struggle with glare imo.



      'Anyone else notice that in some Caribbean islands the locals drive on full headlights all the time at night, bloody nightmare' .......so the posh glasses make the glare much better, have to say I haven't driven on a Caribbean island lately to comment ? Are you for real ?

      As we’re talking inconsiderate drivers( no one on here, obviously) not parking in street parking places properly, in the middle of a two car space,, parking about six foot from the next car, etc really, really gets on my tits. FFS, park at the end of bays if you can, park as close as is reasonable to other cars, it’s not difficult.
      Have a little consideration for other drivers
      I used to see this all the time when I lived and parked in hove near the cricket ground
      People turning 4 spaces into 3 or worse by parking 5ft from the end of the bay.
      I once left a note on a car asking "was there a motorcycle parked behind you when you arrived or have you just parked like an idiot?

      Due to these dangerous, inconsiderate ********, I only drive at night if I'm totally pissed and can't be arsed to wait for a taxi.
