I've been driving in snow/sleet/rain/ice during winter for over 30 years.
Having halogen headlights does not insure that they will not be coated with snow/ice. I've driven through many a snowstorm where I've had to pull over on the side of the road and clean off headlights (and wiper blades).
In fact, 2 years ago I drove through a freezing rain storm for 3 hours and had ice caked all over the front of the Jeep including the headlights (with halogen bulbs at the time).
I've switched to LED headlight bulbs and have NO regrets. They are just as bright, if not brighter than the OEM halogen bulbs.
I also run JW Speaker LED fog lights and they are 10x better than the OEM fog lights.
The 'pure' white light (5000k or 6000k) of the LEDs is much better than the yellow light of the halogen bulbs.
