You need to make some inspection friends.

(2) Check headlamp for proper aim and lighting.
_(b) Reject when:
__(v) An aftermarket headlight (High Intensity Discharge Kit) must comply with Federal Standards, which states every replaceable light source must be designed to conform to the identical marking and dimensional and electrical specifications applicable to the type of light source that it replaces. A non-compatible headlight aftermarket kit (High Intensity Discharge Kit) can create excessive brightness.

You know I might be able to get by with a Morimoto Mini H1 conversion and swap in a halogen H1 bulb in when it come time for inspection.

I guess I will find out soon since I already did a mini H1 swap in my Landcruiser and its due for inspection in January.

I found this cool harness that would make it real simple to swap the H1 halogen in and out: https://www.belmetric.com/ehalh12-eh...l?cPath=18_557

You can get them cheaper here: http://www.autolumination.com/connectors.htm

I've bought a lot of bases from them in the past to make my own LED pnp bulbs.
