If I use my quad headlights during the day, would it be an eye sore to other drivers?

Sort of unrelated to your question, but since you have performed the mod, do you think you could help me with a couple of my questions at my thread?

Much appreciated; thanks!

What does it matter how it looks? I've always seen the quad headlights as a functional mod to improve visibility on dark roads.

You don't see everyday Impalas with quadheadlights, something to stand out.. its just my personal opinion

Does it put any unwanted load on the charging system?

And my OP answer is no, I've had my quads on during the day now for over a year and pass civillian and police vehicles all the time.. my friend did this mod also, and he has the SilverStar Platinum in his brights; I pass him all the time also an notice but not flinch

My point is no one should see them when you are on the road... if you have high beams on you are annoying other drivers. It's for function, not looks.

True, but alot of people do it for the looks as well. It does look neat.

Who the hell is looking at them? They are high beams... you shouldn't be looking at them as you are in the car when they are on and no one else should be looking at them as they should be off if you have other cars in your line of sight.

It is fine and legal to drive with highbeams on in the day time. The police actually encourage motorcycle riders to do it, should make drivers aware with the extra light
