    I know the French colored their headlights yellow for decades to avoid dazzling oncoming drivers, but it is odd to only see it on one set of lights.

    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    It's not bad, just strange.

    As said, FDM cars had yelow headlamps for decades but on all of them and the front numberplate marks this Montreal as an IDM car...

    Interesting to know.

    Oh cool. By IDM do you mean Iberian? FDM I assume is French Domestic Market.

    It makes me wonder, does yellow headlights have any advantages other than not blinding opposing traffic? I remember the 911 RSR or whatever racing version had full on yellow headlights.

    This 911 GT3 looks the business.

    He means Italian. I've seen some older Lancias and Alfas running around with those on the front in states that don't require front plates. Better than the horrid "SläMMeD" europlate nonsense you see on VWs...

    In endurance racing the prototypes have white lights and the GTs yellow.

    Ah yes, I meant Italian...

    Also the German-esque fron number plate in European USDM cars has always looked ridiculous to me...

    Haha, when you hear hoof beats, think horses not zebras. I don't know why I forgot to think Italian before Iberian.
