Hids

Do not run HID's unless you have projectors. You're just blinding every one else on the road and creating hazardous driving conditions if you have an HID in a stock housing.....

99 out of 100 people will say they are dangerous in factory housing. You can't aim them in the factory housing and that is fact

Most HID kits are done in stock housings because the owners are too lazy and cheap to do it the right way.

A halogen bulb does have a focal point which allows it to be adjusted and not glare into oncoming traffic. An HID is designed to scatter light, but in a HID housing there is a projector that takes that light and projects it (notice that special word) onto the road.

An HID in a halogen housing is cheap, stupid, and dangerous. Plain and simple.

An HID is an HID, there aren't different styles for different housings. An HID bulb goes in an HID housing. A halogen bulb goes in a halogen housing. A Xenon bulb goes in a Xenon housing...................................................

OP, if you are sticking with a halogen housing look into a Phillips Xtreme Vision bulb. It is one of the best halogens on the market and will give you amazing visibility without going HID and causing issues.

You proved my point. It still does glare. I have yet to come across a person with an HID in halogen housing that does not make me look away or flip my visor down.

The shield in the housing is what sends the light back to reflect out

It's the fact that most buy HID's and throw them into stock housing with out a projector. I've never seen an HID bulb that doesn't scatter light every where. You can aim it all you want. But with out a projector lens it's pointless and dangerous. But again do what you like. Here's an example of how dangerous it is for other drivers. Click image for larger version

The only hard headed one here is you my friend. I'm sorry you don't want to listen to reason. That fact that you are intentionally putting other people at risk knowing that this can cause issues is proof that your hard headed.

HIDs and xenon are the same thing, no? HIDs use xenon gas...
