Just a little update folks as I've done a bit more night driving and have noticed an interesting feature of the LED's. More than any vehicle I've had before the LED lights 'pick up' on reflective material, be it road signs, clothing (joggers & dog walkers) and animals eyes. I don't know if it is the light colour (about 5000k) or the lens or the sheer power but you can spot reflective material literally a mile away. A deer trotted across the road well ahead of me at the weekend and I could see it's eye's reflecting back from well over 400yds away (yellow) as it looked back down the road in my direction. And that was on dip beam ! I've had cars with HID lights before and the LED's are even better. The 'off road' package, when activated, even moves the lens forward in the light fitting to spread the light even wider for better vision. The only downside I've noticed so far is that when you approach large, white reflective road signs (of which we have a lot of in the UK) the reflection can be a bit too bright and you have to dip the beam to avoid dazzling yourself.
It's pronounced 'twentyonetwelve'
