GTO Lighting

The performance and value for the $$ has me very interested in a GTO. However, the older I get, the worse my night vision becomes. I ended up having to put Euro Hellas in my current car (a 95 Passat) and they made a HUGE difference.

How would you owners rate the headlights on the Goat?

This car has the best "Brights" I have ever seen and I'm old. The low beams remain on when the hight beams come on giving excellent lighting. You would have to be drivung really fast to outdrive these.
OK older (52)

put the Syvania Silverstars in my SS and they're only a few candela behind the more expensive (HID?) So, I'm gonna replace only low beams on the GTO

High beams are good, like written above.

I find the low beams are inadequate as they only appear to illuminate about 30 feet in front of the car. Any tips for improvement would be appreciated.

The high beams are about as good as they get.

Headlights flash then dim?

Anyone else notice that their headlights "flash" and then seem to dim? My lights are set to auto and after I start the car, when it's dark enough for the lights to come on, after 15 - 30 seconds they will flash and then not seem as bright as they were. I haven't noticed this happen if the car has been running for a bit before the lights come on. Seems kinda odd to me, anyone else experiencing this?

Hehe, I'm glad everyone thinks so too, I'm 27 and thought it was me...glad to know the low beams suck. Thanks for the insight Westell, I'll have to go get the Sylvania Silverstars as well.

My low beams are bad, but I think a lot of use have them poorly aligned form the factory. Haven't taken the time to raise them to see if that fixes the problems.

I adjusted mine tonight. They were low as well. Phillips head screw adjuster (plastic) directly behing both lights. I gave mine about 2.5 turns and brought them up very nicely.
