i know many of you on here have installed HID kits to your fortes..

1) how often do you get high-beams flashed at you (or just put on and they leave them on as they are driving towards you) since you have put your HIDs in? i've seen it talked about briefly during posts of people's hid threads, but i jus want to hear from yall here..

i've had mine in since saturday, and tuesday night i was coming home with almost every other car flashing high beams at me... :/

i adjusted the lights when i got home, but now they seem too low...i dont feel like i am getting the distance of light as i should. i tried setting them, and walking out from my car and walking towards it (100ft+ then back) and daang they are bright lights shining at you.

(i also have 6000K fogs in) and for those of you who have HID fogs,
2) do you run your fogs all the time? im used to the extra light from the fogs running, and i hate not running them (for my own sake..hah)

3) anyone been pulled over for having lights so bright the police think you're running your highs all the time? :(

4) so what do yall do to keep from high beams always being shined back at you? or police pulling you over?

1) rarely get flashed, once every 3 weeks, and they turn it off once i flash them
2) Got the Fogs, they run as long as the car is running (even if it's morning)
3) never got pulled over for it (knock on wood), people around here have 10,000K and never get pulled over
do you just have them aimed down really far?

.. i've been noticing many people around here (since i've put mine in) with really bright HID shining in my eyes while driving.

Stock height, no change.

Just so you know, Fog lights cause most of the glare.

Also, mine are 35W, and 5000K

(if you have bluer, you'll get more flashes, and more wattage = more glare)

I get flashed, just once in a couple of weeks, i probably got flashed like 15 times since october)
