    Nicely done. From the pictures it seems as though there is quite a bit of glare on the screen. Is it that bad all the time (excluding when it's dark out of course)?

    Unless you're willing to drop $600+ on a transflective screen from the store here (or come up with a comparable DIY solution), yes, it's going to be that bad.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Do you know the color rating on them? 6000k? 7000k? 8000k? 10000k?

    Because you don't have projectors, any HID kit equipped into a non-hid headlight causes crazy glare for others...

    well they are 6000k. and it is not true that they cause glare. as long as the person installing the hid kit knows how to properly align his/her headlights. thats first and second of all i dont care if it causes glare to others lol as long as i can see the road.

    is not the alingment, it's the housing, regular halogen housings reflect most of the light downwards almost nothing reflects irregulary, but that doesen't matter because the light they omit is not that strong, but when you put a HID kit on a non-HID housing the same reflection now does matter because the light is soo much stronger, HID housings just basically block that light from refelcting, (don't fight with this one with me, i'm a mechanic i have to install them all the time), some cars have HID housings without HID bulbs, why you ask, because when you buy the expensive package you get HIDs, the best way to tell if you if your housing is HID compatible is to park your vehicle about 7 feet from a white wall or garage, if the top of the light starts with an even straight line ____________ then your ok, you you see little strands of light trough that line, that's the light that ****es other ppl off.

    while we're on the subject of lights.... this is something i've been wondering... if you put an aftermarket "projector" lens in your car, (i'm assuming this is every headlight that has the dome-shaped lens) does that automatically make it HID compatible... or is there more to it than that?
