The X5 had xenon in the outer headlights and a halogen in the inner lights and illuminated very well. The X1 xenons have a big long-distance dark area in the centre, unlike other cars I have had (8 BMWs in 7 years between wife and I and others). Will see what BMW-AG have to say about it all. I have some good contacts there.
Aim your headlight higher so you can cover more of the crown of the pavement.
