The ones on my 1995 Saab >9000 don't cast it very far forward. They do help in blinding snow storms or dense fog when your forward speed is low. But, you really have to shut off the headlights for them to help and that's not necessarily legal. You're right about the short beam... it doesn't make them more useful. I myself prefer a "driving" light mounted low like a fog light. It gets the light down low, which helps in fog and snow. It lights for a long distance, which makes them practical to use. It also (when properly aimed) supplements the weaker factory low beams without blinding on-coming drivers the way your high-beams will. Bob
