are you really that dumb that you have to ask that? It demonstrates output of light and where it is located. But I am going to take a wild guess and say that you are afraid to see what the results are which is why you have to come up with dumb comments like that.

Im not trying to be an ******* thats not how I am, my intentions were to make retro'*, but I loved the light output without them so I did not, and like i thought I mentioned me having HIDs and you jumped all over me.
Yes your look better on a wall
Yes yours have better output
But for all that want HIDs, Its not a must to have projectors, and your leading everyone that way.

Was thinking the same eh?



HID'* are ILLEGAL with out a Ballast...Period..
the light output sucks when a HID bulb is put into a housing that was not desiged for it, and the cutoff is crappy

loooong if the cop wanted to he could pull you over and cite you for your lights and have to pay a hefty fine (and yes i have seen cops pull people over for Headlamp/Foglamp issues) the Color means nothing to me and it seems that is all your worried about

if your gonna do some thing do it right
