I'm only interested in the 50w lights due to a paranoia of mine, a story that's rather funny, but scared the crap out of me. While driving at night I hit a dead cow. I was on a 4 lane road at night and my stock headlights failed to show me this oversized speed bump. Didn't see what was on the road til I was darn near on top of it. Didn't have enough time to react before I hit it goin 70mph. Sent my poor little focus a foot or two in the air. The car jolted hard and all the stuff I had (I was on a long trip) was scattered about the cabin. I thought I had totaled my car, but the only sign anything had happened was blood and a chunk of meat hanging off the rear suspension area. I consider myself lucky, and in dire need of better headlights.
