No worries, only reason I asked was in case they had been retro-fitted and maybe corners had been cut in terms of the modified wiring or that. I have little experience of the Mondeo xenons myself, so hopefully someone else who has them will be able to help out with their own personal experience in terms of their brightness.
One thing I have read before is that they're not quite as bright as the really modern xenons if that's what you'd be comparing it too. Would be ideal to compare two Mondeos obviously, but not easy I'm sure! I'd say bulbs could be your best bet as a starting point anyway. Sorry I can't be of more help!
