Unfortunately, my 2003 didn't have the Xenon light option. I'm wondering what choices I have to upgrade the lighting system, as the stock lighting is, well, weak (which can get scary at speed!). I suppose I could have it retro'd with the factory Xenon system, but imagine that would cost $2-3K. Any suggestions?

Headlights

I Have a 2003 CC Coupe with Xenon lights. I dont find them particularly good - merely OK. I asked my dealer to widen the coverage of the main beam because, turning at speed around a corner into the darkness was frightening.
I haven't experienced the standard lights so I dont know the difference Xenons make. I think the upgrade is expensive so unless the candles blow out in the wind :wink: - I would stick with the lights you have.

I may end up having to add auxiliary lights. At even moderately high speeds, there just isn't enough light to safely drive. You quickly out-drive your lights, and with lots of deer around here, that's a bit worrisome. :!:

Turns out the Xenon lights are factory only - cannot be retrofitted due to a different wiring harness?

Any other alternatives welcomed.

Well, I'm pinging one more time to see if there are any other options to boost the light output on the Coupe - bulb upgrades, etc...

Last call! :wink:

Thanks!
