people around here are a$$holes. . . the lights arent even that bright. Ive seen cars with brighter lights than mine. I just wanted to have HIDs. Im selling my mustang so im taking everything i can use out of it. Took the cd deck, speakers, subs, amps, and my HIDs so far.

This thread is gonna go south quick.

Ruben you need to get at least reflector housings. The straight through housings produce MASSIVE glare. That's why you get flashed. HIDs were never meant for the straight through housings. Please put reflector housings on it. And then re aim the light.

I can say that because that's what I had on my 2000 when I had my 4300k HIDs on them... I sold it before I had a chance to put the housings on it, but I got a nice talkin' from a cop about them where they were and the housings they were in. Just forewarning you... People are gonna give you ****. (I know you already said you're getting housings... but I'm just saying that so you know!)

Color looks good though.

I'll never run without HIDs again lol

Are the housings a complete new head light? If so those get pretty expensive.

You need to aim your headlights down more if people are flashing you. They aren't flashing you because they think its cool. They are flashing you because it is BLINDING them and you are going to cause an accident and hurt someone. It will be 100% your fault.

All personnel, hold your fire. Hold your fire. Hold your fire. Weapons on safety. I'm dealing with this "problem" right now. Just stop with the replies for a few here. Thanks!

Ok guys. Problem resolved peacefully without incident. I removed pretty much all the BS from this thread in light of Ruben realizing his mistake and apologizing for his actions. So with that, I'm going to leave this unlocked and we can all continue this discussion in a happy utopia.
