Very good question.
Are HIDs illegal? No.
Are HIDs street legal? Sometimes.
Are retrofitted HIDs street legal? No.
The DOT recent passed a law that makes retrofitting HIDs into a car using anything other than factory parts technically illegal. You can still drive with them offroad, or use them for show, but they are not considered street legal. Cars that come with them factory-equipped are considered legal due to the fact they have DOT and SAE tested, certified, and approved.
