i dont know what you guys mean....Jdog the lights arent bright at all because mine are tinted and even before the tint they werent bright at all nobody complained and i checked them with some of my friends to see if it was blinding so i dont beleive that and cappa i dont know what you mean putting hid's in a car is not making it ricy lol they look good.

I ran hids for 3yrs in an explorer, never had a problem, never got pulled over, never got the finger from anyone. Was my explorer a ricer?

It is not that they are bright. It is the fact they HID are already directed light where the halogen bulb isn't. Halogen housing are designed to direct the scattered light. So basically you are scattering the HID directed light in all directions. It isn't the fact it looks ricey or dumb. I do like HID's that are correctly done. For example don't use a halogen housing or extreme color temperature. I am just trying to educate but you probably think I am talking out of my ass and have no idea what i am talking about

And HID's in reflector housings are illegal.

Just another thing to give the cops a reason to pull you over, not to mention what could happen if you got into an accident and someone like me was smart enough to notice illegal lights.

"Your honour, I was temporarily blinded/distracted by the lights in that car that I hit. I just couldn't see perfectly and I hit him" True or not, doesn't matter, I win and you pay for my new car. [woot]

Hey does your brother know anything about the error code eliminator? I have a ddm tuning hid kit and need a resolution to trick the computer to accept my 35watt 6000k. I understand i could use a relay but I would prefer to have the power source come from my original headlight housing. I purchased the "error code eliminator" yesterday hoping this is going to fix this problem

I don't know how much truth there is to this, but I've heard from several people that the upper cut off on newer cars is so aggressive that HID's in reflector housings arent that bad for the glare any more.
