I think your tranlation is a little off there. Included is the washer cleaner system not Headlights Shining Purified Light.

The headlight purifier system has to be fitted in every car with xenon lights in Germany. The government passed that law. <P>Some time ago, the xenon lights have been anounced in Germany as available for all engines. Unfortunately, they reduced the offer to the two most powerful petrol turbo engines.
