Its a personal thing. Unless its a retrofitted headlight i don't even think about buying hid's. I actually took them out of my turbo when i bought it because you couldn't use them. 20 something year old flutted lens headlamps shouldn't have HID's.

I'm sure its a little better with the rangers but its still a parabolic reflector and not an actual z projector. To each his own though, i still like the LED's. I buy my LED's from www.SuperBrightLEDS.com. I had some of the turn signals and tail lights for my last bike. Their stuff really is pretty super bright. Good website layout as well.

Over what? There is nothing in that reply that sexually arouses me. And the response 100% correct in stating that the OP does risk a citation since 8000k is pretty blue. Glare can not be judged with a photo. In fact I already asked the OP about aiming and he already took care of it. Do you have anything intelligent to add to this or does that pretty much cover it?

For tmoore, your response is meaningless so it does nothing to change my opinion on anything. The fact that you have not received a ticket for something doesn't tell me anything. I drive over the speed limit every day, I guess that means speeding isn't against the law anymore? Unless you are going to actually look up and tell us what the state law on color of lights and modification of lights is where you live, it means nothing.

Not to start a pissing match but maybe i should take a crack at making a retro fit.

The MX6 was hard as hell with its low profile headlight housing and shallow lens.

I bet i could come up with something cool using some junkyard ranger headlights and some BMW projectors

U didnt start a war. What starts the wars is when fanboys of HIDs in stock lenses call anyone a crybaby who speaks up about getting blinded or speaks up about why putting them in halogen lenses is not ideal.

my second response was a joke, along with the guy i quoted, or at least i thought he was joking so i thought i would too. we all know you know your shit about HIDs/laws with them so why would i try to change your mind about it?
my first response was not directed towards you, it was towards 6cyl. I was not calling him a liar, just stating a fact from my point of view since we live in the same vicinity. "I hope your state doesn't ticket you for that. Here if you have a kit like that a police officer will ticket you in no time."

Ah ok. It came across more like you were jumping on the break FireRanger's balls bandwagon that a few certain people ride around on. Its cool.
