Xenon HID (High Intensity Discharge) Bulbs is the latest trend in headlamp technology. Employing a different way to produce light, it is also practical since it emits a very bright light while consuming less power. Differences are literally night and day, and awestruck approaching vehicles soon become dismayed as they engage their high beams to counteract with the Xenon HID bulbs to no avail. That alone is a proven statement that Xenon HID bulbs are way brighter, safer, and is the practical choice.
Emphasis mine. I don’t know what the writer was thinking, but how can you be driving safely when oncoming drivers are blinded by your expensive and stupid HID lights? Yes you can see them, in fact you can stare at them trying to look away from your glaring lights. Maybe you can even see them hitting you straight on. In the next paragraph, he writes:
A night demonstration employing the different light temperatures that Xenon HID Headlamp Bulbs offer is a worthwhile sight, although not for long. It is so bright that the eye cant focus on it for extended periods. Different light temperatures were sampled out during the event, and the HIDs were even compared to a "measly" halogen bulb to further reinforce that "Theyll love your headlights; theyll hate your headlights" statement.
Now it makes less sense even more—He knows that it’s hard to look at HID lights for a long period of time, but still they are the “brighter, safer, and is the practical choice.”
