    The main reason people don't really HID the highs is because highs are usually used on the spot. In a hurry. A quick flash. Etc. And HID's have to warm up to operating temperature in order to see with them. Just keep that in mind. If you know that you can turn them on, warm them up and leave them on then that's great.

    IMO the HID Fogs should work just fine. Might need a slight angle adjustment but you can leave them on and not blind oncoming traffic.

    i know i have seen some dodge trucks done like this but i think a cadillac looks better with the hid look in the fogs then a dodge and i have projection style fog lights which a different bulb from stock but it still sucks but i might do them too and as far as the flash to pass all four of my headlights come on when i do that i was wondering is that normal but it don't matter since i don't use that flash to pass much anyway just like to know if it is normal
