I don't care whatever article you throw like this. I have an official document and it is not written that HID's are illegal in Quebec.
And I think that with my company I am in a good position to talk about HID's because I've seen many and many different cars. I have to tell that bi-xenon HID's produce illegal pattern and also some bulbs that use spacers. But direct fit/bolt-on bulbs produce exactly the same pattern than an halogen bulb. You're proving your point with articles made by mr. Nobody, I'm proving my point with an official document and my experience with 30 HID kits. I don't see any point on arguing with you much.
does your document specifically say that putting in an HID retrofit kit is legal, or does it simply not mention that putting them in is il
legal? that's a big difference.
but a direct, bolt-in HID bulb does not
produce the same beam pattern as a hallogen bulb. it's geometry, it is impossible to have the same beam pattern when the location of the light source changes inside the focal point, which is the case with a hallogen to HID conversion.
if you don't trust "mr. nobody," hear it from the United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

or how about official documents from the United States Department of Transportation, showing the different categories that the kits failed in? in these examples, the DOT used "bolt-in" HID kits. wait...i thought that if you got bolt-in kits, the beam pattern is "exactly the same." why is the beam pattern drastically different, each out of the three times it is tested? it's because an HID bulb's arc-style light source is in a different location than a hallogen's filament.
like i said last time, yes, the laws are different everywhere. but the bottom line is, HID kits are illegal (in both the US and Canada), unsafe, and unreliable. with that said, i am not going to come to any of your houses and make you remove them, i'm not going to flame anyone for having them, nor will i ever ask anyone to remove them. i am simply in the business is spreading correct
information, in the hopes that someone will use that information for good. but i will not be told that i am wrong, because i'm not. my claims have a backup based in science, and proof showing both the fact that they are
illegal, and scientific evidence showing why
