Xenons don't blind if they are adjusted correctly, else they wouldn't get type approval. Badly adjusted halogens are just as bad.

When driving at speed, at night, you can never have enough light, and halogens just don't cut it.

I agree, my R50 had halogens and I had to get driving lamps to feel comfortable driving at speed on B roads at night.

By speed I don't mean excessive, I just mean making progress at the prevailing speed limit.

If you think your new mini is bad try a classic mini....

It's like driving with a candle in a jam jar.....
