Quote, originally posted by 09vGT Â»Just curious, but how do vehicle manufactures get away with this? They still do this, not much, but one vehicles comes to mind. The Nissan Rogue SL. I saw one the other day with HID's, well I have seen several, and they are factory and have NO projectors. I am not absolutely sure. I am not a lawyer or a politician. I only play BOTH on TV... sitting on the TV that is. But I did say "retrofit kits." Perhaps Nissan and other have found a way to produce a reflector that is capable of a proper cut-off that suites the HID lighting?Or, perhaps it's all political and they are allowed to do so because it is produced at the factory and therefore is not a retrofit?Pa. inspection law used to state (it might still) that anything that is NOT original to the factory intent of the vehicle is illegal. Perhaps that's how they have managed to sneak it through?All I know is that I personally know a few people that have installed HID kits in reflectors and been pulled over, and ticketed for having them that way... one particular S-10 comes to mind immediately. He was ticketed several times before the ticket costs exceeded his need for HIDs.When I found out, I told him then that one way or another he was asking for trouble... and he found it.
