Did you fail because of the HID lights themselves or because you had the single HID Kit (no High Beams) and you failed because you had no High Beams?

Good question. I don't see how HID's make it 'unsafe.' It's better vision at night!

Stupid laws.

Stupid laws.
How about it being safe for the guy coming at you at 70 mhp. Do you want him to see or would you prefer him to be blinded.

I think HIDs should be illegal for on road use.

kinda wish we had some sort of inspection. so so so many cars come in with bald, dry rotted, chord showing tires, people drive everywhere with headlights out, brake lights out, no brake lights, etc.

Maybe for you, but you blind everyone else on the road.

Cars sold with HIDs have properly designed lamps and auto-leveling devices specifically designed for HIDs to aim correctly with no glare.

"glare" is needed for driving period. most US signs are not even lit at night, glare is there for a reason.
