    To be honnest, i think the same, the lights are not verry bright comparing my other cars with xenon.
    On the other side, i don't drive the F during the night, or only a short drive home....

    I never thought the lights were dim, but I'm usually driving where there are street lights and all sorts of ambient light.

    Now I need to go find a dark road, at night :)

    They are adequate for driving within the speed limit, but if you are going quickly, they aren't adequate. I'd like to get mine improved also, anyone with any ideas?

    I have no complaints with the OEM'S!!....but I don't have the need to see at the car's limit.

    WOW! this thread is a shock to me. The 430 lights are ridiculously way TOO bright imo. I had an 05 and couldnt even drive down the street without people flashing me and beeping cos they were too bright and the same with my 07. I even asked the dealer for help thinking maybe they were not aligned properly. They were, they are just very bright lights is the answer I got. I think they are excessively bright and would like to tone them down some if possible.

    +1 Drive down a private and very curvy road home (2 miles) that has virtually no lights except those shining on lawns-trees, and I can can go at speed without concern. Best
