actually, $200/side doesn't sound all *that* bad if they projected well in the stock reflectors... We used to spend 3-4x that (per light!) for decent lights for mountain bike racing...
Years ago, I used to run white "fog/driving" lights on the 1993 (car had DOT lenses) when driving at light as it casts a wider swath into the bushes (lots of moose and deer up here)... I eventually realized that this is actually worse, as brightening the foreground pulls your focus to the nearby woods, where there would not be enough reaction time anyway on a highway... it makes more sense to run amber fogs for fog and ecodes to see better at a further distance. I find the wash into the bushes further ahead is much better with the ecodes than DOT lenses. Prior to getting ecodes for the 1993, the difference between driving the 1993 and 1989 in the dark was like night and day...
All of this is a reminder that I need to replace a bulb in the dash of the 9-5... the one for the high beam indication! Now that is an application (dash lighting) which should be all LED, and in fact, I'm considering doing so on my 1993 as the dash lighting is a little flaky now on that car...
