I haven't and I purposefully pull out of a lane and get behind a cop if I see one! Nothing like blinding the crap out of a cop :D

but see, most of you guys have projectors that do really have a glare due to the cutoff... I have installed hids in cars with reflectors and my fucking goodness they are blinding.. We have them in our mini van that we take to tahoe at 4 am in the morning to go board and we drive right behind cops and no problems. We even drove on a 2 lane highway and the other side was a cop and no problem, although ppl do high beam us, but whatever..

Same.

I get people flashing me every now and then though thinking they are high beams but it's usually because my car is sitting at a higher elevation or something.

Yeah me too. I had one knob that I passed go behind me and turn on his high beams and leave them on. I was not impressed. I guess he must do that to every mercedes, bmw and acura that gets near him.

See lots of cars that don't come with them stock at least in some trim levels, can get tickets becaues of having them in what is quite obviously halogen housings. For us we could simply state how it's available as OEM for our cars but we wanted a lesser expensive option with better results, and even though there are subtle changes between one projector and the oem's apparently, that they have no grounds to walk on since it purposely shapes the light to be acceptable with H.I.D's

That's Genius!

Now one last question .. dealing with these bad boys ... seeing as they take more power from the battery-- has anyone had to change their battery or noticed any changes in electrical performance after installing them?

It powers the spark when it first ignites the gases.
