Have only had one car with xenon active headlamps, in fact, it's the Lexus we traded in. Good head lights and the lights turning into the curves was entertaining, but can't say there was a particularly noticeable benefit over the standard headlamps on my '09 VW Jetta TDI. But that, of course, is a bit of an apples and oranges comparison.

So, in the current 3 series how much of an improvement do the xenon active headlamps offer? How would you rate the standard headlamps?

Thank in advance for the feedback.
Are you going to drive at night? I am not kidding here either. if you do, they are not just worth it they are a MUST.
