|As a temporary fix, I have installed the bulbs into the high beam locations and adjusted them down to where the low beams would be. I then had to unplug the low beam bulbs because the MKV Jetta keeps the lows and highs on at the same time. This means I have no high beams. I installed a resistor to turn the bulb out indicator off on the dash.|
I know this particular post is kinda old, but the thread is still alive. So if you are now using your adjusted HID high beams as regular driving lights, I gotta ask
WHY IN THE EFFING HELL would you do that???????????????????????????
Do you not realize you are still blinding the hell out of everyone else on the road? It doesn't matter that you adjusted them down. Here's why.
The low beams have a cut off that blocks MOST light from going above a certain point. Granted there is still some glare designed into the headlight, but it is not nearly as bad as using a high beam as a driving light. Again, Yes I realize you said you adjusted them down. I don't care. The high beams do not have that cut off designed into the reflector. You are just scattering light all over the damn place, granted at a lower level, but the point is you are using an HID high beam as your driving light.
I swear, if you were driving near me, I would intentionally run into you head on and sacrifice my car just so you didn't blind anyone else on the road.
For the love of god, Please take those lights out of the high beams, and get your lights working how they were designed. If you insist on being a tard and running HID's in a halogen headlight housing, atleast run them in the low beam reflector and adjust it down a little bit.
Have some common sense and respect for your fellow drivers.
