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?

Just asking, are you using a projector? HIDs are made for projectors, not stock halogen headlights lol. My brother got pulled-over within 2 days of his HIDs and had to remove them.

Using a projector will leave a clean cut-off and you won't look like you have your brights on and cops could care less then. It's not the brightness that will get you in trouble, but the scattered light that the HIDs without a projector is causing.

By no means am I putting them down, just expect to get more negative attention without using a projector.
