STLtrailbSS said:I have heard of people getting pulled over for the blue and also amber in some cases. I did some research a while back and people have been ticketed for HIDs. Honestly best way is to google it for your state see what you turn up.
TB2k4 said:True story. if there is anything against it, it will be a state-by-state basis. I know states set the window tint laws and stuff like that. Michigan gov had an article about lights. If they do do it, they do it for safety and so certain color lights face certain directions.

I swear there was a trail of rice behind it.Maybe it was snow
IMHO, 5k - 6k looks the best and least apt to get you pulled over.

The fact is, the higher the temperature the less light output. If you want more light to see better, stay in the 4300K to 5000K range. I have 6000K and wish I had bought 5000K.
CdnGMan said:One of the numerous "want" items on my list is a set of 6000K HIDs... hopefully I won't run into any issues with the police after I have them installed...
Sounds like you know it all, I pick you as the authorsmitty5150 said:Great, so now who takes care of that? Someone needs to explain the risk and benefits, theory of ballast operation, cri(color rendering index, ie temp)definition and differences, other modifications needed(drl killer).......
snowyredenvoy said:Exact article I read. If i was to get the white Hid's for my fogs instead of low beams. Do i Need a special module to control the DRL for either kill or 100% cause i just want keep them on at night. Could i just turn them on manually and Not get the module? Thank You I appreaciate it!lol
snowyredenvoy said:Yea, I have the silverstar ultra's in my low beams and there close to white and light up alot better then stock. But I think the hid fogs are what I am going to go with. I am about an hour south of lapeer.

All Saabs with the 5.3 or 6.0 had HIDs standard. They were an option if you opted for the 4.2 base engine. If a Saab does not have the hidden headlight washers on the bumper, you know it is an I6 because the washers come with the HIDs. Now that said you can buy OEM replacements with any Kelvin value so if you were to get pulled over, had factory hid's but high Kelvin value bulbs with say a purple light output, I'm going to say the cop can opt to give you a ticket.
