They dont suck, they will still illuminate further down the road since they are aimed higher. If you install HIDs in your highbeams, you will loose your daytime running lights, and the ability to flash people with your brights since they take a few seconds to warm up.

yea alot of people do xenon fogs in addition to lows....

IMO i wouldnt get HID hi beams.. just get silverstar ultras for your hi's
Only problem is i hate Silverstars. I am getting a retro soon and just needed to know my options. Any issues with bi-xenon?

more expensive... and i think you still use 1 ballast for each light so you still have a high beam delay - ask customlightz to be sure
Now i am guessing you will loose hi and low beams being on at the same time.

i have HIDs in my low beams. and the blue bulbs in my highs, and the blue bulbs look YELLOW compared to my hids lol kinda funny because i loved the blue bulbs and how white they looked. but yes, i do have to use them still because they shine further and higher than the low beams
