Like night and day (no pun intended).

My last car, a Infiniti G35, had Xenon. HUGE difference between cars.

Even with SilverStar zXe, and PIAA Extreme white plus bulbs, driving down mountain roads from Big Bear at night in the Focus is a real chore.

The pattern is too narrow, can't see anything off to the sides to anticipate turns.
