Whoa, those look insane. You must be able to see everything with those. Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't Xenon's made illegal?

Nope, you are correct ... But I had no choice in this case! I needed to have some brighter lights! And yes I do see MUCH better.



Just FYI-These are 10,000K's the brightest ones you can purchase anywhere in the world.

What happens to all the cars out on the road that came from the factory with Xenon headlights? No way in hell I would have them replaced for stupid Halogen.

Yeah, that's very shady...hell for all you could say is "the dealership installed it for me"...and claim you never ever heard about it being made illegal...
Seems like yet another unenforceable law...

Yup! I guess its good for people who want Xenons, but bad for law enforcement. But honestly, I couldnt figure out why they are illegal ?? They arent VERY bright, and if they are, they dont hurt the eyes nearly as much as halogens would.

No clue, my whole thought process is if they were so bad then why did so many vehicle manufacturers endorse them and put them out on the market. Very strange.

I dont think the cops have a clue if they are oem or not, you should be safe
I just dont want to be comming in the opposite direction from you




My friend has them on his 02 Focus, they came factory, I love how they look and I can spot him from a mile away, you just cant buy a bulb that has the real look of hid's

Thats good,



I was just reading another post that you replyed to about the headlamp covers.......now I know why you need these lights




I had a 97 F150 off road with the headlamp covers on there and I left them on all the time and still got flashed everytime I drove the dang thing, it did have the factory fog lamps in the bumper with the original bulbs, I got so pissed off
I wish I would have left off the headlamp covers, then at least I could have flashed them back :roll:

Well I can shed some light on this issue. There are in deed after mark Xenon light bulbs that are DOT approved for all states. They are probably not as bright. They have them on ebay all the time

I have those...and they are absolutely NOTHING in comparison to true Xenon lights. These so called "Xenon bulbs" are really just H3 bulbs that have a white/blueish tint to them. That's it. MUCH better than stock but still absolutely NOTHING in comparison to true Xenon lights, like what Steeda has.

OMG that looks great!!!




If I were to get Xenons I'd try not to go over 5300k. Anything over that provides too much glare. Mainly the whole issue about the Xenons is because people are getting them and not re-aiming their headlights to compensate.
