US is right. However, with enough care and time and effort, you should be able to mod your new HIDs so they don't get you pulled over by the first cop that drives past you going the other direction.
Check out the Electrical & Lighting Forum, especially the HID sticky!
If you can post pictures of exactly what you got (in the E&L forum), it will be easier to tell you what you still need.

d0000d, that doesn't apply to HIDs as they have a completely horizontal cutoff from left to right. Now, if he were using JDM halogen bulbs which actually project light above the horizontal toward oncomming traffic (to illuminate roadsigns in Japan).. then yes, he would blind oncoming traffic. HIDs scatter enough light above the horizontal without trying.. hence the flat beam.
