I'm HID illiterate, other then just changing the bulbs in my Audi, I've never added a HID setup to any car so forgiveness if this is a dumb question.

How does a single HID bulb possibly do both high and low beam functions?

Usually there is a second tube next to the lo-beam.

All the hi-beam portion does is create more glare.

Agreed with Golks.... usually there is the bulb and a little one beside it that like he said adds more glare or you get a "moving" kit and its all one bulb but as you flick between hi and low beams it moves the actual bulb forward or back in your headlight housing thus giving the same effect of more glare or higher n lower pitch of the bulbs.

Thing is with HID's you dont need hi-beams, I used to have a set and I remember cruising the highway at night and seeing just as far, if not farther, than regular hi-beams.

As long as your car didn't come with HID's you don't need HID's. Plain and simple.
