    HIDs can't be used (from what I understand) in the high beam as a rule due to them taking time to fire up... would be no use when you 'flash' other road users... would most likely fail a typical MOT too... not sure they are legal to use in flog lights either due to HIDs requireing self leveling and washing mechanisms by UK law..

    Exception to the HIDs as main beam is on newer style headlights where the light module automatically moves up from dip to main etc... I believe the 8P S3's have this type of system...
