I know this topic has been beat to death, but one thing I haven't seen posted is whether you can, in fact, put dual filament headlight bulbs on the MP3 ... or would it call for replacing one headlight component to support dual filament? Does anyone know, has anyone tried it?

The intent is to have two low beams on all the time and keep only one as a high beam (since that thing is so bright).

It would require replacing the bulb sockets because they support only one filament. I also suspect there isn't a socket that fits the reflector. Therefore someone would need to come up with a complete wiring/mechanical lens solution.

That's too bad. Would've been nice to have two low beams. Thanks for the input.

+1, plus people would stop telling me one of my headlights is burned out.
