Get the DRL killer from meber Tblazed on here for about $35. This will disable the flashing lights when using remote entry and it will also disable the daytime running lights so you don't wear out your HID's prematurely.

DIC=Driver Information Center ( lets you control certain functions of your car using buttons on your steeringwheel and it shows up on a readout on your gauge cluster)
HID=Hight Intensity Discharge ( they are brighter than halogen bulbs usually found on your high end cars such as lexus)

When you think HID, think the overbright headlights. They tend to have a bluish tint to them sometimes. Misaligned (as many are) they're unsafe since they generally blind the oncoming traffic. Properly aligned there's a decent difference (not worth the money, IMHO).

I have never, ever, not once had an oncoming driver blink his headlights to indicate he thought my lights were too bright. I have had the HIDs on for 40,000 miloes, and do a significan amount of nighttime driving on two lane roads. A properly installed HID system improves safety for the driver, without inconveniencing others. One hell of an improvement to the vehicle. Europeans have known this for years.

Bearcat, don't come to New Jersey. The State Troopers just love to pull over vehicles, especially ones retrofitted with HID's, that are out of alignment. They are on the lookout for ones that (seem) overly bright or are out of alignment. After they ticket you, they will tell you to "have a nice day/night". BTW, I don't have HID's.
