Hello all, I have been looking on this forum for a while now, I got my cruze in December last year after getting the infamous cracked bell housing(was racing lol, legally tho!!) in my 05 cobalt ss I have gotten many ideas from here including the tablet in the dash, and have seen aome that I don't really agree with to be honest. everyone is subject to their opinion and this is mine when I comes down to HID headlights. I have seen a lot of people on here saying that if you don't have projectors HID's are illegal. This is false. HID headlights no matter which housing they are in are illegal. They are not SAE or DOT approved bulbs. Unless the HID's come factory on your vehicle installing them are illegal. When it comes to projectors look at the lenses before you order, if they don't say SAE or DOT guess what? Illegal. If you look up the Toyota prius, the older Cadillac escalade, older bmw's, 03-05 Nissan altimas/maximas, Lincoln navigators, all of theses vehicle either had already or were available with HID's, however they all had regular housings, no projectors, so shouldn't they be taken down too? I have ran HID's in my cobalt's and my cruze as well as my brothers all in regular housings. One thing people dont do or realize is that when you install HID's aim your headlights down a little. The light goes further even when aimed down and keeps the light from going up in other driver's eyes, weither you have regular or projector's when you install HID's lower them some and you still get brighter and better and other driver's dont hate you lol. HID's are great light's i personally have had every color from yellow to purple as fog lights and 6 and 8k's as headlights(would rec 6k, not as blue less chance of an issue with the fuz). All in all just wanted to throw it out there that if you decide to go HID know that what you are installing is not going to be legal with or without projector's. Not trying to make a thing about it just letting people know that this is a good upgrade but not if you are worried about cops or what have you, if thats the case upgrade your harness and get get some silverstars. thanks for your time and cruze safe.
