    They have become very popular here in Houston. If done right they can make your vehicle look cool and allow you to see better at night. If you don't know what I'm talking about they are those blue colored headlights you see on cars. They use a ballast like a florescent or street light. The problem is people are installing cheap retro fitted versions that are too bright and move up and down when you hit bumps. I get blinded almost every time I drive at night by someone. Since my lasik eye surgery I sometimes see starburst from lights at night and this makes it worst. Under Texas law they are technically illegal, but it doesn't appear that the police are enforcing it. Do you have this issue where you live? I'm seriously considering getting some tinted glasses for night driving.

      Tinted glasses for night driving sound dangerous! I know what you mean though, some people love their ghetto lights, like the LED brake light strips on trucks that blind you when driving behind. I preferred when those lights were only on high end European cars. I actually think they look bad on any non luxury car.

        Yea they are like bass and rims in car back in the 90s. Well people still do it today too, but not as much. They would put 2 12" subs with an amplifier from Walmart. The amp would have no low pass crossover so mids and highs would go through the sub. The trunk would raddle and the sound would be distorted.

        My windows are tinted on the sides and back so it might not be good idea to wear any tinted glasses. When I get my eyes checked again I might ask them about some prescription drops I read about. They reduce the pupil diameter so the light doesn't blind you.

          Yeah, I hate those lights. They are annoying and blinding even if they are not going over bumps. When I was young I learned that you turn off high beams if you can see another car's headlights. These things are like having the brights on all the time. Fortunately, I don't drive these days so I don't have to deal with them.

            Oh yeah, whenever I see that cheap blue light blinding everyone around, I know Mr. Big Spender's in town again. (Please stay in your ride - no one wants to talk to ya).
