You can get the same effect as factory halogen lights on your car by
just not turning the headlights on (seriously). People that own a Gen I
Mark VIII have spent a $1,000 or more just to convert their dangerously
inadequate halogen lights to HID so they can see to drive at night, and
you want to go in the other direction? WOW!

Unless you've spent a lot more than $1k to rewire the whole lighting

(which I have and can see with just fine, thanks).
Just because you're legally blind doesn't mean that everyone should
install a higher-current lighting system and risk scorching up their
factory wiring. Though perhaps with a few magnesium strips, the
resulting electrical fire would be more than bright enough to illuminate

HID lights actually consume LESS current than halogen lights, and
produce less heat. The lights I retrofitted are factory equipment for a
'96 Mark VIII LSC, so they're safe and legal. If you have a Gen I
Lincoln Mark VIII with halogen headlights and can actually see to drive
safely at night, more power to you; most people simply can't, and I'm
talking about people in their teens & twenties here that should have
good night vision.
