Bad Idea. First off it's illegal, and secondly your light output is greatly reduced.

A few other reasons for not doing it are:
1. Heat will not dissipate as efficiently, and cause your bulbs to run hotter, and if you have HID's they'll probably burn something.
2. They look like ****.
3. You look like a ricer.
4. They look like ****.
5. It'll burn through eventually with the heat of the lights and then they'll look like even more ****.

All the bleeps are sh!t btw.

True, but it doesnt matter, the heat from the light is the same, if not, greater than halogen.

On another note, I think it'd look sick.
BUT, light output is greatly reduced. If I did it, I'd just smoke the headlights.
