I've experienced worse headlights but I do find mine pretty naff on dipped beam. On main beam they're good though.
Also, I think all MiTo's have front fog lights so if I'm driving on country lanes at night and there's not many other cars about, I put them on to light-up the verges, so I can see if any animals are about to run out in front of me.
I know strictly speaking they should only be used in fog but I work on the theory that if it helps prevent an accident & won't bother lots of other road users, i'll use them!
Enjoy the Junior - the 1.3 is perkier than you might expect, but good luck keeping those white alloys clean! ;-)
