how do you blind someone if you only fit high beam?

Sorry but the information in this instructable is incorrect and illegal. HIDs require special optics to properly aim and control the light from an HID bulb. When you swap out bulbs for HIDs you are changing the way the light is projected and put others at risk of being blinded. The ONLY correct way to install HIDs or LEDs on a vehicle not originally equipped is a retrofit. This requires you to take the headlights apart and install an HID specific projector to properly control the light. Otherwise you are blinding other motorists and causing a hazardous situation.
