I have a "usa model" '06 Ditech. The headlights suck, whether low or high beam.

My 12/20 watt Niterider bicycle light is brighter.

you could always install an HID kit... most kits are around $100 USD. that would make your headlights a lot brighter.

No idea what the wattage is. I haven't pulled either bulb to see.

The headlights would be acceptable, even at the pathetic wattage they are at, if the reflector beam pattern were better -- that's where the real problem is on these headlights. On mine, the low beam is a scattered refracted-looking mess up close, with a decently illuminated spot about 20 feet out. The high beam is totally worthless, with a spot illuminated about 60-70 feet out, and nothing useful up close.
