I like the light of my HID's, I don't want the damn government getting
involved and feeling bad for people dealing with glare.  My lights are fine,
and are aimed correctly.  We don't need any more laws governing our vehicles,
we are squeezed enough by the environmentalists and the govenrment as it is.
