Carbuzz.com reports Porsche’s high-intensity xenon headlamps are easy to steal and make great grow-lamps, as authorities in Amsterdam have been discovering.

Car parts are often stolen, such as badges and rims. But headlights? That’s the question which Dutch police found themselves asking recently.  Apparently pot growers in Amsterdam have discovered Porsche’s high-intensity xenon headlamps.

The units reportedly deliver just the right amount of heat and illumination to encourage the growth of the cannabis plants, while using little in the way of electricity, making them a favorite among the narcotic cultivators.

Rather than buy the $700 units from a parts supplier, though, the pot growers have been running around the Netherlands stealing them (with apparent ease) off parked Panameras and Cayennes, leaving the luxury vehicles without their headlights (along with an apparent lack of alarm systems).
