    New to the forum. I recently replaced the passenger's side low beam bulb, as the original burnt out. Has anyone had complaint/issue with the side visibility with low-beams on? Meaning with my other vehicles, I can see curbs to the sides when driving slowly through neighborhood streets, making sharp turns into driveways, etc. With the Prius, I have a very hard time seeing to the sides. Is the low beam just that narrow? Do the fogs on the high-end ones help? I wouldn't think so, as they're so close to the center of the vehicle. I'm debating some aftermarket lighting at the low corners.

    Thoughts?

    What other vehicles are you using for comparison?

    My Prii (2010 first, then 2012) were my first 21st Century vehicles, and are greatly superior to any of my prior vehicles.

    2008 Toyota Sienna, 2004 Honda Accord. Both have far superior vision off to the sides.
