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?

When I had my stock headlights I would get flashed every now and then. Once I put in my 35W 5000k headlights (I now have 6000K) and adjusted the level I haven't got flashed once. HID's are becoming so common now I can't imagine you having a problem with the authorities unless you have something really different.

And like others have stated you're probably mostly getting flashed because of your fogs. I haven't installed my fogs yet but once I do I'm not going to go HID because it's way too bright IMO, I'll probably just do a SilverStar halogen or something.
