I wasn't happy with the lights for my EF Sedan.. first thing I did was polish up the
lenses as they had gone yellow with age/UV exposure. There was a thread here a few days ago discussing exactly that.
I also got some brighter globes too. You need to be careful with the EF/ELs thoug (not to sure about EA-ED though) as they have plastic lenses that will melt.
I can't remember what the maximum wattage bulb is that you can put in the EF/ELs, i think its something like 55 or 60W. In any case i found some narvas that
were right on the money as far as the wattage goes, but they were labelled something like "XX+50", where XX is the wattage and +50% 'brighter' than standard. They made quite a difference.

You got to light a match to see if the lights are going.
The lenses are clear but the lights are pitiful on low or high beam. I'm used to cars with much better ones.
I know that replacing normal round or rectangular lights with halogens makes a big difference but what about these skinny things?
Has anyone else done anything with theirs? Where do you fit spotlights on them?
