Since I don't have a picture of what they looked like from the inside, here's one of them from the outside. I used to run 6K on both the headlights and fog lights a few months ago. They were incredibly bright, and after getting flashed at and pulled over (cops in Florida, especially Tampa are assholes. Wasn't ticketed though, just got a warning) I switched back to halogen fog lights and kept the 6K headlights.

The problem is the headlights. Hid bulbs in a halogen reflector cause light to scatter vertically and "blind" oncoming traffic. To resolve that, you actually need to retrofit a hid projector into your headlight housing. That way you get a horizontal cutoff line and light isn't going vertical.
