In the proper housing they are fine. In a halogen housing they are blinding beams of scattered light.

I find they help me see 5x better than with stock halogen bulbs.. 99-04 mustangs on dark back country roads have the worst stock light visibility imo

No...those projectors are not hid rated. You are stuck with halogens...

@low...you know I dont mind running hids in non hid headlamps. Let's leave it at that please. I don't get high beamed and I run them low.

+1 on the clear blacked housing. I'm not a huge fan if smoked lights. I have blacked out housings and HIDs and it looks super mean!
