    Default New marbete makes your headlights brighter

    I've had my car for around 18 months now and although it has factory option Xenons, I was very underwhelmed with them.

    Today I bought my new marbete and I thought I'd clean my windscreen from the collection of old ones before sticking on the new one. Last year's one came off easily. Peeled off with a fingernail and cleaned off the sticky gook with thinners. The other three proved to be a problem. They wouldn't peel off! Next out with the Stanley knife, to reveal they were stuck under a film of window tint!

    It was so well installed and not that dark, I never even noticed it was there!

    It's actually quite a satisfying job removing it.

    Well anyway, I now have a nice clean windscreen and I can see at night!!!!!!!!!!

    So that you can be even MORE night-blinded by Dominican drivers who don't dip their brights......

    It also confuses the AMET if he does not have the new sticker.
