I think it depends on where you live too. I live in the middle of nowhere pretty much, and we have very little street lighting. Other areas have enough street lighting that you can often get away without headlights at all.

IMO the fact that BMW updated the projectors from plastic to metal in the E90 is pretty strong evidence that BMW knows there was a problem.
