The oncoming traffic (with Halogen-lights) notices it by the greater blinding effect, Xenon-light should, in it's colour, be very similar to natural daylight, thus making the changeover from daytime- to night-driving easier.
In the above picture a comparison between Xenon-(left) and Halogen-(right) light is shown. By clicking on the individual buttons one can see the colour changes which take place after being switched on for a certain amount of time. This shows, that the distinct bluish hew is actually, only present in the beginning. The Xenon-light colour relatively quickly approaches that of the Halogen-light. The blueness decreases clearly. 05/11
