Wow, the lighting section concept has become a reality, great!

Thanks Eran. Lighting is of interest to me constantly, as I consider having the best visibility a necessity on the road. I've gotten through about a quarter of this thread, and am eager to read more on the subject, so I'll be coming back to complete my homework. Cheers to you for this compilation of information.

Yes, I do agree that this should be mandatory reference for anyone with lighting in mind.

Absolutely amazing writeup.
I don't know if you are the person who wrote this, but if you are, I applaud your thorough understanding of the English language and the grammer needed to use it properly.

A genuine thanks from me, my friend.

This just saved me from making a "tell me the difference between H.I.D. kits and Retros" thread. Thanks for all of that!

so your saying that putting hids on my civic is illegal if i dont retro fit?

No, yellow light does not help. It's a percieved benefit.
OK I'm confused too....so yellow light in inclement weather does not help one bit? Like fog/rain? That's mainly when I run the fogs...but more recently (before our rain storms started) I have found myself running them almost constantly at night....what should I use then? 6000k?
