Naturally, the new lamps required testing.
So I did.

Fortunately it was dark.
The dispersion is similar but better than whatever they replaced, and they were obviously a bit brighter, too.
Snow was falling (had to chase some down in my travels) somewhat vigorously, and the beams were so aimed as to not induce flake-reflection blinding; whew.

They brought it inside to warm up about a half hour before the tech actually touched it. Another reason I take my Kizashi to the same place.

More time with the new lamps proves having both replaced at once was wise vision-wise.
They definitely provide more illumination.

I notice the 'drilled rotor whirring whistle' sometimes as I come careening to a halt, and I kinda like it. I can vary its tune by modulating brake pressure, which is also kinda cool.

Did you get a particular kind of halogen bulb or just replace old ones that were wearing out?

The dealer uses Helio bulbs.

Helio? Never heard of the brand. You don't mean Hella by any chance?

Even with my current 'enhanced' warm-up idling, I still averaged 26.0MPG for the last 537 miles.
It's not like I forgot how to mash the gas!
