Someone else just asked this question on the forum yesterday. I'll tell you what I told him, as politely as possible : people are not going to like you on the roadway. Everyone wants the HID bulbs because they look cool, but our housings are not properly designed for these bulbs. Like you said, they just shine all over the place, blinding every other driver on the road.Stealth87 said:Took the Escape in for service this morning, routine oil change and inspection, all free of charge since I have the maintenance plan.
Asked if they could adjust my headlights, since I put in new HID lights. Tried to charge me 129 bucks to do so. I said get outta here and give me a call when it is ready.
Thinking maybe the HID lights may have been a premature decision. They look nice, but the light output seems to be all over the place. I read somewhere on here that the headlight housing is not meant for HID lights, which makes sense.
Might try to sell the HID lights and just upgrade to a brighter bulb like Sylvania Silverstars??
My opinion: sell those bulbs ASAP to someone with a proper projector setup, and then get some Silverstars or PIAA bulbs if you want an "upgrade".
Sorry if I come off as a jerk - that's not my intention. I just wish that everyone without proper HID projectors would stop putting these lights on their cars.
