For those of you thinking that your comments are falling on deaf and stubborn ears, I would like to point out that you guys are the ones being prejudiced and calling names. And in my opinion, this is a discussion not an argument.
Bottom line is that you can say all you want about halogen housings with aftermarket HID bulbs, but I feel very confident mine aren't bothering anyone. Everyone seems to keep sidestepping the pains I have taken to make sure this is a reality. Basically, this is the bottom line for me whether the lights are legal or not. I haven't been a cop in 3 years, but as of 2008 aftermarket HID lights were not illegal in Washington State.
I'm sorry you can't have a discussion with someone that doesn't share your opinion without resorting to name-calling and then plugging your ears when presented with information that doesn't correlate with your beliefs.
