It's also now illegal in the US to have HID/xenon on any car without the auto leveling feature. Many HID kits sold are illegal to use on a public roads and some cities police will ticket you and require you to replace them with factory headlights if they don't auto level. It's also very easy to spot which lights auto level and which don't.
USDOT may say not legal but it's up to states to enforce laws. Some states don't care. I see a fair amount of cars with uncontrolled aftermarket Xenons blinding the crap out of everyone. Not so moot when plenty of drivers break the law and few cops are willing to enforce. Sucks
