Yeah you just blind everyone else and look like an asshole. Do you not understand that your headlights have reflectors and are made for shitty halogen lights to work properly? Don't be a cheap ass and update to projectors if you plan on using HIDs.

Great handyman work. Does your car turn green when you turn them on?

There is no extra reflection and since my car is lowered and a bmw, headlights point very very low. No one has flashed lights at me, so other road users are comfortable. Here most people use high beams at all times, I hope you can understand.

Sorry but no. That pic (in the daylight no less) shows blinding obnoxious lights. I can only imagine how frustrating it is to pass you at night. Being an inch or 2 lower doesn't change the fact that those HIDs are spraying in all directions with nothing to focus and aim them properly. Here in the USA this is a common trend with kids in their ghetto racers. I know friends who have this and I tell them just as harshly that it is stupid. I've driven their cars and you can see nothing at all, while managing to blind everyone else.

Ok but you're still not using the lights correctly. None of the light is focused properly.

You could have just bought halogens bulbs in the color temp you wanted and saved yourself tons of money

Momma's boys? I think you meant to say "people with style who like things done properly".

All you've done is created a setup that is likely going to overheat, and looks like pure pure shit. We tried respectfully saying that this setup is retarded when you asked us for our opinion. You did literally NOTHING right on this setup. You have successfully made your car trashy and now got offended that no one likes the most ghettos lighting setup I've ever seen on a BMW.



What did you expect us to say? "Oh my god look how bright and cool he is?" Any idiot can slap HIDS on any light, the problem is you are likely getting WORSE visibility and no matter what you say however much you've lowered that car makes NO difference. I'd absolutely hate to drive by you, but then again there isn't a chance in hell I'll be in India so it's really a moot point. But if what you say is true and everyone else there drives around with high beams on 24/7 I guess you will blend in with the other idiots even if you are just running your low beams.

I would also be shocked at this, unless I hadn't gone to India a couple of years ago.

Unfortunately, in India, this is the norm - where every car from a Suzuki to Merc has HIDs slapped into halogen housings.
I'd almost go as far to say if you didn't have them installed, you'd most probably be more at risk from being hit by someone that does.
