Yes, but stock are not projectors, so you're not going to have a cut-off line.

Make sure you're not gonna be blinding oncomming traffic, that could be dangerous. Cutoffs are pretty important.

Did you see a trail of cars swerving into the ditch after you passed them? J/k

If you didn't get flashed then you might be alright.

BTW...who are you insured with? $250/month is crazy high!
