Jeez. They're freakin bright! I reckon I got ripped off cause mine aren't that bright. Nicely done.
And further more, I have had mine in for just over a week now.. not one flash from anyone else, even drove passed many coppers. Nothing.
There staying!

I looked into whether they are legal or not and from what I gathered the kits aren't illegal but to put them into a car that isn't designed for them is illegal, e.g. you need those pop up squirters or little wipper blades to keep the headlight free from dirt. Thats what don't like cause if its dirty then the extra light given out from the xenons gets thrown everywhere after reflecting off the dirt.

A little from column A, a little from column B.
I got this from wikipedia. Under 'Xenon HID - Headlight' search.

Quote "Therefore, headlamp lens cleaners are required by ECE Regulation 48 on vehicles equipped with low-beam headlamps using light sources that have a reference luminous flux of 2,000 lumens or more. This includes all HID headlamps and some high-power halogen units."

But then again I haven't spoken or got written evidence from the authorities so I'm really only going by this and few other little passages here and there Like this one>>> http://www.danielsternlighting.com/tech ... sions.html

thanks for the info mate im not questioning u about what u know but i saw nothing about the adr rules

as far as that web link shows its a load of s**t bout filters and refectors
i based that on lightforce lights range of driving lights the 240xgt (normal globe) has the same filter and refector as the 240 HID light the only diffrence is the ballast within the light its self
pdf information is on lightforces website www.lightforce.com

also kinda wanna add these bmws audis that have hid lights and they have passed their adr dot test lightforce hids have passed dont see why no a retrofit plug n play system would be any diffrent (remember me saying lightforce 240hid have the same reflector as the 240xgt) why would lightforce make a 240xgt when the design for that light was based on a hid reflector and filter ......lightforce rrp on their lights are as follows
2x lightforce 240XGT $500
2 Lightforce 240H.I.D $2000

Of course theres something to do in Adelaide :roll:

It seems as though it's all a bit of s**t bout them being illegal, expecially with what you've found. Also those BMW/Audi/Merc and the likes all have those washers I'm sure.
But I'm thinking its got to do with them being your low beams - 'driving lights', as those lightforce and any other additional lights are meant to have an individual switch for them (acording to a mate I helped put some lightforce lights on his ute) therefore aren't your 'driving lights'.
Either way they will be staying on my car, but would I would be interested to know if it's true or someone didn't like them and then started a rumour that they were illegal.
