hids are only legal on vehicles that come factory equiped with them. no matter what retrofit you do, if your car didnt come with them theyre not legal to have.

i drove around with mine and i wasnt hassled for therm at all. no retrofit either, but i had mine aimed down a bit so they only shined about as far as my high beams did and they actually didnt glare anyone. even my cop buddies said that when i was coming towards them or behind them they werent annoyed by the lights. but thats not in the gta, in the gta if you fart too loud in a modified car your gonna get ticketed

then your best off removing them or getting a retrofit. a cop can ding you for failing to turn off your high beams and thats a 2 pointer.

If your blinding other drivers, than you can get ticketed for it. No matter what bulbs you have, whether they're HID's or stock.

I hate HID's in the city. They just faking glare my eyes. Especially when they drive past you and you cant see nothing for a couple of seconds after. Theres street lights everywhere its not like out in the north with no other lights. And yeah you can actually blind on coming cars to a point that they steer into you. And yes the cop can give you a ticket or if you cause an accident because of them then youll be in deep dodo.

The highest ive seen is 12k. The most amount of light comes from the 4k bulbs anything higher you get less light but more color.

I'm not sure of the colour as I advised him to not install them. He showed me the box which had Chinese writing and said 30 000 K on it.
It would look something like this

lmao you can't see shi* with that kit. Your just begging to be pulled over with those on your car. Also your headlight are only supposed to be yellow(amber) or white. And any modification to your headlight that affects or hinders your headlights can get you a ticket...you can even get busted for eyelids
