HIDs in halogen housing aren't as bad as people think they are, they are MUCH better output and dont do glare as much as internet reading
after installing HIDs just re alligen your headlights and you're safe to go.
been running HIDs for easy 5 years and never had anyone flash me or complaining saying they are too bright.
my factory projectors on the Escalade are A LOT more annoying at night to look at than my Bonneville
Escalade and range rovers, their projectors are so annoying yet look so sexy!!
I'm not basing my opinion of HID'* in halogen housings on anything i've read online. Quite a few of my friends have done the HID conversion and not one of them looks good. When you're in the drivers seat, I can't deny it looks good, lights up the road oh so nicely, even the color looks good on some of them, but get out the car and stand in front of it and you get blinded! I don't know why you think that'* a good thing but last time I checked, there are other people on the road too so blinding them wouldn't be a good idea. One day me and some buddies had gone over to a friends house, he had just put in a huge system in his Tahoe and we wanted to get a demo. On his street he'* got tons of tree'* that kind of form a canopy over the street. He has some nice HID'* from FutureVision and put them in his halogen housings. We all got in our cars to head out to the demo spot and when he backed out of his driveway and headed down the street, his HID'* lit up the top of the canopy like you wouldn't believe. We're talking 20-30ft in the air! No thanks, I'll pass! And yes, he did realign his headlights after the install. He'* finally done a projector retrofit now so his setup is super sick, but it took him a while to do that.
I have another buddy with a 97 Accord, 2002 Navigator, 2000 Crown Vic, 99 4-Runner, 2005 Civic, and another with a 2001 Tahoe (not the guy mentioned above) all with HID'* in their halogen housings, same thing. I haven't seen a single HID install into halogen housing that doesn't glare like a **** and shine light everywhere in front of the car, including high up in the air.
