Speaking of headlights, I haven't travelled in a 'modern' car at night for
some years.  Last week I was a passenger in a Jag XK8 and the dipped-beam
cut-off was so absolute that on an unlit road I couldn't see anything -
parked cars, people or bends in the road - further than 10 yards away.  The
driver didn't seem to mind and it was a route he travelled fairly often, but
it made me pretty nervous at 50/60mph.  Give me the soft scatter of my MGBs
