i am from scranton, PA and i have a HID kit on the car. i have had no inspection problems with this kit on the car. i do know the manager of the garage i go to so that may help. i don't think that a car w/o DRL's won't pass inspection unless it is marked down that it had DRL to start with. i would recommend Apexcone HID conversion kit from xenonexpert.com or from lightwerkz.com. lightwerkz is a vendor here somewhere, but don't know if they sell the Apexcone kit. either way, it is a great kit.
