HID Bi Xenon headlights are awesome! I know because I have some! I upgraded because I have a 2001 Range Rover and they didn’t come with HID lights in 2001. I got myself an HID kit and installed it for myself. I bought it from the HID lighthouse for 65 bucks so my total cost was $65. You can pay to have someone install your kit for you so it shouldn’t cost more than 120 dollars or so for the upgrade even if you don’t install it yourself. So I’m very happy for a two reasons.
One, it was inexpensive.
Two, I can see sooo much better at night now. I wear glasses and my vision is fine, but at night it gets a lot tougher to see. So HID lights brighten up the road to a ridiculous level of brightness and it makes driving feel 1000 times safer. Which brings me to my question in the title of this article. Is safety really coming first?
I remember before I had HIDs I’d get pissed off when someone else had them. They made it hard for me to see and unsafe because I was being blinded. Especially with someone behind me. But now that I have them and now that I’m on the other side of the fence I love them and I don’t get blinded because I can see so much better. I’m now that annoying guy on the road with the super bright lights blinding everyone else.
But what about everyone else that doesn’t have them. HID Bi Xenon lights make the road a little bit less safe if you don’t have them, but safer if you do. So what to do? I guess everyone just has to do what I did.
