I just bought some xenon hids 6000k 35w last night and I was wondering if they will work good on smoked headlights? I have smoked

If you enjoy blinding other drivers they will work perfect.

I dont know why everyones a ***** about hids, if you angle them lower than stock then they work great for you and dont blind oncoming traffic. You almost have to get hids to get good light output with smoked lights

I was told by a cop a few weeks ago when he was writing me a speeding ticket....cops don't care about smoked out lights, what pi$$es them off is when people have the HIDs that blind everyone.
So I rock my smoked halo heads without HIDs

because they are illegal and scatter light if the housings are not properly retrofitted

I have 6000k hids with smoked headlights I love them.
Idc what anyone says its my car I can run what I want, yea they may be a legal but so is alot of other things like tint darker than 50% so are smoked headlights and tail lights but I'm sure the same people that are bi!ching about HIDS have something a legal on their car.

These are what I run. I've only driven at night 1 time since I has them installed 2 weeks ago. And it was under city lights, so I don't know how dim they are and if I need to upgrade the bulbs.
I bought the bulb upgrade, I just didn't wanna go to an hid kit and melt my housings

Its very hard to see with stock headlights through smoked lights
What does a typical HID kit run for? I don't wanna get anything that will let off ALOT of heat.

35% is legal here. That is what i have on all my cars. All of my cars pass the yearly inspection with no problems.
I just hate being blinded by morons who want cool looking headlights.

Maybe you shouldn't get dark smoke headlights if you can't see instead of compromising the vision of other drivers on the road.

I bought my girlfriend smoked lights for her 02 mustang and she can bearly see at night, mine are perfect not to bright and like said above you can adjust the height. I get so tired of people bi!ching about them being illegal well so are alot of thing like pipes with no cats like everyone runs and long tubes/ tint/smoked headlights and tail lights front tint strip. I have never heard of anyone around here getting pulled over or ticketed for HIDS.
Now I agree like the 10000k lights are dumb but I think the 6000k are perfect for smoked headlights and even the 8000k isn't bad.

That's why the lights I have have a lightly smoked lens with a blacked out bucket. Give it a much deeper smoked look without having a dark lens

I don't blind people on the road my headlights are smoked and I have my lights adjusted to the road not up, your constant complaining about this subject amazes me.
