108 standard states-by providing adequate illumination of the roadway, and by enhancing the conspicuity of motor vehicles on the public roads so that their presence is perceived and their signals understood, both in daylight and in darkness or other conditions of reduced visibility
it's not the bulb "brightness" it's your cars lens that wasn't designed for these controlling the beam..
the kits are not d.o.t. and are for off hyway use..
I'm not telling you not to use them... thats your choice..
but they WILL tow your car.. once the officer finds out you where not just driving with your hybeams on.. as thats a ticket.. but non d.o.t .aproved parts is tow.
