it cause a halogen headlights lets 3x as much light above to cut off ( compared to xenon) to light up road signs, now change the steady filament to a live moving arc and u get even more light above the cutoff. that is why they glare like crazy then people get blueberry colored light making it even worse. but atleast they are dimmer.

the best light i have had are kioto or stanley. i think chrysler uses valeo whick have a good cutt of but weak on width and output. , bmw uses bosch and they range from ok to good.

a retrofit is needed to make it look decent.
i have a 2006 boxter s projector that i had in my 98 tacoma that blows the oem wk2 h.i.d projector out of the water in width and output. been debating doing a retro on it.

I've had HIDs for years, since 1998. So, I was skeptical about going back to the Halogens too, but really they're fine. Around here the roads are so lit, its really only on back country roads you really miss them.

Given an even choice I'd always take the HIDs...but its not a deal breaker to me.
