Re: [DML] Results of Sylvania Silver Star light replacement

Of course sealed beams are "still legal" in Europe. They may have been
phased out of production, but drivers of older vehicles are not being
ticketed or arrested for using them. 

Properly adjusted halogen sealed beams throw just as much, and just as
dispersed, light as their replaceable bulb brethren. 

The changeover was prompted partly by style (you can't mold sealed
beams into fender-integral shapes) and partly by maintenance concerns
(replacing bulbs is faster). Basically engineers looked at rear
fixtures and decided to emulate them in the front.
