Our reflector housings are not designed for HID. You would be producing alot of glare that is blinding towards oncoming traffic. The only real solution is a retrofit like EddNog has.

But you hate the aftermarket, so...
Nah, I think HIDs look sweet on the tC. [/b]
Me too but it saddens me that a retro costs $1200. i can't justify paying that for headlights.

that's great...

I got a HID drop in kit... I'll have to see how bad it is... if it looks good and has a nice cutoff, i'll keep it in... and show you pics...

A guy I met at Palisades has the same kit... It looks great but we didn't have a wall to see what the cutoff looks like.

^^^ Yeah, to be honest, I don't really care much about the second thing. People are always blinding me with their stock HIDs that are supposed to be "non-offensive," so I don't really see how this would be any different.

I knew you'd have my back, d. Seriously, I know that the fact that other people are inconsiderate bastards doesn't mean I should be one too, but sometimes you just have to throw your hands up and do what you want.

That's one of the things I'm a little worried about with the HID kit... Blinding other people. I just got flashed 2x Saturday night, and the only thing I can think of is that my headlights might have been too high/bright... but they're STOCK. There weren't any cops around.

you arent the first to report that occurance. it seems strange to me, because the low level yellow from stock is hardly offensive. on the other hand, i have to turn my sideview mirrors down when moriarty is behind me with those damn luminics.
