as far as "legal" goes. there all the same wattage and are all just as bright. some have bluish color to the bulb to help them look more white in color but there no brighter IMO. you want bright go HIDs

I've had these and have since upgraded to HIDs, and they will blow Silver Stars out of the water, the best money yet I've spent on my truck.

Hey dude as far as beign legal dont know I had them on a 2001 Screw and was never pulled over and I did alot of night driving it was so cool seing everything. Im in Illinois so I would bet you would be ok with HID lights, the cops here where I live are really hospitable (****s).

It does not affect anything just dont start cutting wires, they normally come with spades that you can just stick in the bulb socket.

Which HID kit did you go with? Did you just use them in your stock housing?

make sure the wattage isn't too high, you can melt your wires.

That's a big no-no. I hate it when a ricer/tuner has HID's without projectors. They usually get a flip of my highbeams as I go by.

And as far as the brightest bulbs I've used... I'd say Silverstar Ultras.

Is it really that bad with just standard housing because there are cars out there that come with xenons that aren't projectors? I really need some better lighting, the halogens look like they should be daytime running lights, I want some HIDs.

HIDs FTW .............new stock halogen housings are designed differently than they used to be. Reflective housings used to scatter light as much as possible but now, they have more precise aiming of light as you can see in almost ALL newer (post 2000) vehicles. I've got HIDs in reflective housings and have NEVER been flashed or warned about my headlights. No complaints from anyone in 9 months
