Ah Munch, I can always rely on you for constructive criticism, and I appreciate that. My point (about what you quoted) is that HID’s give you better visibility to other vehicles. IDK about you, but my rear view mirrors don’t usually grab my attention peripherally. Sure, I look at them every once in awhile to maintain my situational awareness, but HID’s have a much higher contrast against what you are used to seeing at night (or day) in your rear views. When I see HID’s bouncing around in a mirror or in front of me, they ‘pull’ my eyes over to see what it is, because it’s obviously not an every-other-vehicle halogen lamp. This gives me confidence that HID’s attract the attention of everybody, and I want that (for safety, not personal attention).
As for the modifications needed, you are right, I have done my research. I am fully informed about all the mods that HID’s would require to operate safely and efficiently. I just wanted to know if anyone else at BBM felt the modification was worth the gain in attention, or if anyone else noticed HID’s on the road like I do. If nobody notices them, no point. I’m curious for safety purposes.
