I dont go out of London much so im not driving on motorways so often, but they're not all lit... The M1 (i think) has a nice long stretch where its completely pitch black.. Dangerous in the night when its raining... and thats not so rare in good ole Engerland!

Menu, on these dark stretches of the motorway, with your low beams on (normal night lights) you cant see the thing that separates both sides of the motorway, you know, the barriers in the middle.. even with the high beams on (strongest light) it's still not that clear. when youre doing 90mph in the fast lane, right next to the barrier, then all of a sudden you cant see it anymore it makes for pretty stressful driving conditions. if you dont have a car in front of you to follow it can be pretty hard work, especially if its pouring down

Hopefully i'll have my 330 by then, fingers crossed

Buy some of those blue laser beam of death lights for it... then remove then when returning the rental, and sell them on Ebay
