well, not literally BLIND anyone

it's just that it can make it hard to see when you pass someone

projectors control the light and ensure that it's cutoff below oncoming traffic's eyes

I'm not knocking your lights, I think they look great

you can also learn a lot about HID stuff at hid plant's forums, if you're interested

I just aimed mine down too. I had so much trouble installing mine cuz the plugs didnt fit right so I ended up having to cut the plugs off and hardwire them, and then I found out even if the plug had fit the polarity was backwards so it wouldn't have worked. Can you say bullcrap, it was supposed to be a good brand too.

even HID with projectors is illegal, your lighting setup needs to be aopproved by the DOT

I'm not sure, depending on the area your cops could either give you a $10 fix-it-ticket or a more expensive alternative, best idea is to understand the laws in your area and make your decision based on the outcome that best suits you

When you aim your lights all the way down, that's just killing your light output onto the street, so why do that? With projectors, you can at least have your lights pointed outward enough to see everything. Instead of seeing only 10ft in front of you, why not beable to see 40ft in front of you....

Only moronic rednecks flash their lights at me who think I have my brights on. Actually, they just keep their brights on and I turn my yellow High's on and THAT is what nearly drives them off the road.
Generally, I don't have a problem with people flashing at me though. I'd eventually like retros but not any time soon.
