A buddy of mine was selling a set of HIDs(dont know the the K color but they were very white light output) so he let me install them on my truck and try them out,I did and yes I could see alot better but it had alot of glare. I got out on a 2 lane highway and got flashed by every other car. I really wanted them but I cant risk the safety and legal issue.

It's called headlight aim. I never get flashed.

I have had my 6000k for about 3 weeks now and no one flashing me, I have been behind several CHP officers and several city and county officers.

I haven't had anybody flash me with my 6000K HIDs, and I followed a friend and she said I wasn't blinding her. Its all about how you aim them. I had to aim them lower with the HIDs, but I've had no problems.

Anyways..it was just too much glare for me and the cops down here are bad about pulling over lifted trucks for headlights.
