yeah because if no one does then everyone will just be blinding everyone, hell I could throw some air plane landing lights on a cop push bar on the front of my car...you know 4 of them would do...as long as I can see, who gives a **** about anyone else right??

there is a reason that OEM applications have specially designed reflectors and projectors is because it is safer for everyone else and provides better output for the driver at the same time.
