My experience with the headlights is that the "high beam" seems to throw a lot more light off to the sides - its beam seems a lot wider - but that it does not throw much light very far down the road. For that reason it seems most appropriate to use it when travelling relatively slowly at night, and in those instances where you might want to be alerted to animals appearing at the side of the road. I find it of little or no value at high speeds on straight roads (i.e. freeways), since the areas it illuminates are passed before you could possibly react to anything you see there.

I also find the brightness of the high-beam indicator bulb to be a little irritating - and I have relatively dark eyes. I also find that the glare of the high beam causes unpleasant reflections in my windshield (S/S).
