The Toyota's and Lexus's with thier MASSIVE car length headlights are bad, but I think the Acura lights seem to be the ones that piss me off.

Personally I don't mind the HID's. True they are bright but they dont seem to bother me, regular halogen lights that are bright affect me more than any HID that I have encountered. Even though I wish that my vehical had them they seem to be an expensive feature especially when they need a repair. I'll just stick with my Silverstars.

HID's + tall SUV's = blinded! while i know headlights are designed to shed light on the same space regardless of vehicle size / height, tall SUV's headlights are right in line with my poor eyeballs.

I ordered my CTS with HID's, against the better judgement of my favorite Cadillac salesman. :rolleyes:

In practice, I don't think I get anything practical from having them, but they sure look cool. B)

I've had the car for about a year now, and no one seems to mind. Of course, I live in SoCal where just about everyone has them, so maybe I don't represent a good sample.

I know that they blind me when a driver is coming towards me...

You can't see anything...I know it's been so bad I've had to stop....

I think they should be illegal :angry:

Ahem - you forgot the added speed advantage and a 65% less headlight fluid consumption. <_<

Bothersome. That's all i can say. Dim yellow lights on every other car. But then i have to squint as some acura with HID's rolls by. It seems like a pale blue - then as my retnas fry - they glow almost pure white - all while i'm trying to drive.

This is one reason I like the front end of the Canyon/Colorado. The headlights are just above the bumper with the signals on top of them, it makes it much nicer for the people in cars.

It's ok as long as the truck/suv behind you isn't aiming into your mirrors at eye level. I live on a hill so I do get blinded for a split second or two from oncoming cars on certain inclines, but it's usually not too bad.

The problem I have are with those blueish ones that contrast with everyone elses lights and especially ANY bright headlights with misaligned beams....

Import drivers are notorious for that last offense.

My 2 cents.

Laters,
Scott
