I know this is a wildly late response, but you get to keep high beams if you install these correctly.

There's a thread somewhere with a picture/link to the fog/halo combo. I'll try to look for it after work.

The first cop that sees you with forward facing red light is going to give you a ticket... Think about it...

*two year update*

Besides my initial problems, which i detailed in my first posts, there have been no problems to date. The halos and 4 leds work fine, my hids still work fine. There has been some condensation inside lately, that just could be because of the high humidity. I'm extremely surprised that these things have held up, especially in the michigan winters (high salt on roads and below 0) and the 90+ summers. I would definitely recommend for those who haven't bought these yet.

As a side note, sorry to all those people that had questions and pm'd me. A plethora of factors has caused me to stray and I haven't been keeping up. I'll stay on top if it from now on though.

Usually if the HALO is not working it means you need a new inverter. It's the little black box that is wired to the back of the headlight.
