HID Lights? Legal Or Pull Me Over Now?

Well a friend of mine gave me a set of HID head lamp kits for my car. The light kit is the kind that replaces the stock bulbs with a Xenon arch lamp, ballast and ignitor. The color is 6000k white/blue. The kit was a Xmas present and was purchased from carhidkits site, so I do not want to offend my friend by never trying them, but at the same time I do not want to blind others on the road or get a FAT TICKET. What are the penalties if it is not legal? Heck, what is the legality of these light kits? I live in CA if that has any bearing.

basically yes they are illegal, but who is going to know since some evos come with them stock. the k color is what gets you in trouble and blinds people with 6k you should be good. put them on and enjoy.

Every state and police agency is different. I have stopped people for HIDs, because they were like 10k and on a 95 impala, and those cars all had drugs in them
