RE: Dereck, does this guy pay you for advertisment

I don't know where you are located 75 Sizzler, but Halogen headlights are indeed legal in all fifty states now, AS LONG AS YOU ARE USING A D.O.T. HOUSINGS AND HB-2 BULBS. Most Hella lights are what is referred to as E-Spec, or European code. The E-code lights are better with the light dispersion, but NOT street-legal. The D.O.T. housings are available from Motorsport Auto in Orange, and are the Autopal Brand (Hella Knockoffs). The new Narva Xenon HB-2 bulbs are MUCH brighter (equivalent to 80/100W conventional quartz-halogen tugnsten bulbs) and totally LEGAL. Look at the new Toyota Camry: Here in the USA, the Camry uses HB-2 (9003) bulbs, in Canada, they use the same housings, but Spec H-4's (same bulb, but HB-2 bulbs are limited to 65/55W, H-4's can be reall flamethrowers 130/165W!!!) For practical purposes, as long as the lens has "D.O.T" on it, the coppers won't bother you, as you have to disassemble the light to determine if the bulb is also legal.
I run tugnsten-filament H-4's with 80/100W in a D.O.T. housing, and the CHP leaves me alone. One officer even said: "Those are the brightest damned LEGAL headlights I've ever seen, where'd you get them?"

Tony, I don't think so but,

My neighbors kid put them on his Honda and was pulled over and given a warning to remove them. I have not read any laws regarding this subject. It could be possible that the cops were just hassleing him, But I would think that they would have better things to do than spend time in court on a thing like this. By the way I live in Idaho.
