On all my other cars when I put the main head lights on then put the full
Beam on I can see the whole of the road.
In the mini when I put the full beam on it seems to turn off the main beam and I can’t see in front of the car but I can see further down the road. Very weird, any ideas?

What MINI do you have? I had second generation convertible with normal headlights and to say that they were $h1te was an understatement. I did a lot of driving in France, midle of nowhere and pitch black and it was a bit scary how bad they were, even driving over here when I used to drive back from friends down country lanes I was worried I would not see something or someone at the side of the road, so when I got my Roadster I made sure I had the xenon’s

You can get some better bulbs which are supposed to cast more light but I can’t say I found them to be much better, you can get some more powerful bulbs but I was warned about frying the electrics.
