Just curious if anyone is running an HID setup with stock 99-02 Silverado headlight housings? Ive seen a guy running around town with HID's, and his lamps tend to glow becausr the plastic isnt very clear. Its got that angular cut to it on the inside I guess.

I have HID on my 00 Silverado with stock housings. They are on the lows and fogs. Best pics I have of them are below. They are very hard to photograph in the night, to get the "true" look of how they look out on the road. I've yet to be flashed since I put them on, that was about 6-8 months ago.

ive had mine in for about 2months now and havent gotten flashed at all. I put my highbeams on for a few minutes and get flashed pretty quickly. Im currently using some aftermarket lights with a clear lense and black housing

as long as the lens isn't oxidized..do it, it will be one of the best things you have ever done to the exterior of your truck

aim your headlights correctly and you wont get that, i have 6000k in Denali projectors and its rare when i get flashed

The only problem I have heard/read about is that there isn't really a cut-off line which may piss lots of people off. In other words, the beam isn't as concentrated like the HID housings. I have Xenarcs and even that line could be sharper :read:

correct, there it no sharp cutoff, but if you aim them correctly not to many people get pissed. I havent had any cars flash their lights at me and no cops have bothered me yet. I actually got flashed more with the silverstar ultra's then i have with HID. With stock lense's i dont know how the output/glare would be since the stock lense's kinda diffuse the light. Mine as well upgrade to a clear lense wihle your at it :rocking:

hope you decide to get you a set..they are well worth it.
my friend has the most expensive silver stars and i hate getting in his truck after mine...because mine are so much brighter.
