Q: Legal HID halogen lighting

asked by on

What you can down put in HID halogen lighting that is not illegal? All is illegal and dangerous for other drivers on the road.

I reset my lights so they go lower and I measured it and actually took it to a place that has a measuring device and they said that is totally legal. So I’m not worried about it. If you got a high vehicle, you don’t want to point that up. But a lot of people are putting those HIDs and the kits don’t cost a lot of money. You do have to have them reset. If you ever noticed the old ones, they weren’t that fancy like the newer ones. To tell you the truth, I don’t drive that much at night anyway, so I hardly ever turn my lights on.
