The headlights found on these expesnive vehicles are too bright and produce excessive glare especially when combined with the headaux (fog/driving) lights that these drivers insist on running at the same time. If you decide to continue to allow these lights at least limit the bulbs to low beam lights without any aux lights allowed on the vehicle.
