Hello all,

New to the forum. My wife and I are looking at Volvos (xc90 and xc60). I do a LOT of night driving, my 2006 325 has 196K on her and am looking to trade in. Good headlights are a MUST for me and am wondering what the light pattern/output is on the XC60 with FACTORY HIDs. Is there strong cut-off to the pattern? Can anyone comment on how the HIDs compare to factory BMW HIDs?

Much appreciated.

Cutoff on the factory HID XC60 is nice and sharp. Light output is very good, but not quite as good as the factory HID's on my Mini Cooper though. Not quite answering your question, but there you go.

Welcome to the forum.

I haven't driven my wife's XC60 in a while, but I remember my general impression is that the XC60 HIDs were not quite as good as my M5s, but still very acceptable. After having purchased two cars with HIDs now, I won't ever go back to non-HIDS if I have a choice (note: did not have a choice on the Volt I just bought...no HID option there...am considering aftermarket there).
