very illegal. and very dangerous. the HID was not meant to be used in a halogen reflector housing. there is way too much glare and no cut off. sure it lights up everything you can see, but they can blind the crap out of oncoming traffic 95% of the time.
HIDs in the proper housing are awesome especially when used with a projector. but the majority are not in the correct housings and are a danger to everyone. it is too easy to buy these lights and they are not illegal in themselves, but when installed into the incorrect housings they are.
read up on hidplanet.com and search haknslash for good information. he has been doing retro projectors for many vehicles for years and does them the right way, ensuring proper adjustment and cutoff.
sorry if i come off a bit harsh, but this is my #1 pet peeve in the automotive world right now.
