buy those cheap bule bulbs that u can find anywhere on ebay, replace the blue bulbs with your High Beam bulbs, and prolly u will needa replace yor low beam bulbs with Silverstar bulbs, while u r drivin, turn on the High beam. men your won't believe how sux these blue bulbs r, but they give out really blue lookin. the light of these blue bulbs arent even brighter than the low beam Silverstar,,,,, you will get a really HID looking, and good vision......... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

are you suggesting driving with highbeams on? correct me if i am wrong, but the only difference between the lows and the hi's are the aim- the highbeams are aimed higher to get more distance, that's why it blinds on-coming traffic and people infront of you...

High beams on a B5.5 come from a unshielded reflector setup which means they cast light upwards as well as downwards. Lows come from a shielded projector which cast light downwards only.

There's a reason why lows should stay lows and highs stay highs. :crazy:

Maybe you'll figure that out when you get pulled over. :whistle:

Did you really need to read other peoples opinions before you stopped driving with high beams on?

who the hell drives at night with their hi beams the whole time???
After becoming partially blind from cars with highbeams on, apparently a lot more people than you think. I doubt these jerks know what high beams are. My wife is one of them.:banghead:
