To my understanding, most states it's illegal to have HID outside of a vehicle that was originally equipped with them. With your Explorer, it's understandable. There's no way to keep the light out of people's eyes. Most OEM HID's are in projectors. The projector has a cut off shield that does just that, it cuts off the light from going ot high and blinding people.
I've done extensive research about HID retrofits and IMO, retrofits are the only way to go. A little costly, but they're well worth it.
But, I can't talk too much... I have an 8000K kit in my xB, but it has non-HID projectors.
I don't suggest anything higher than 6000K. My 8000K kit is a little difficult to see in the combination of rain and dark.

My 8000K's aren't too bright. They're bright and everything, but they emit more of a darker light. You want more white.
What you see on high end cars (S2000, BMW, Benz) is the flicker. The flicker is produced by the actual cut off shields from the projector.
Give it a whirl. See what happens.

Flicker? The shield just causes a cutoff.

10k's are going to be very blue, for a whiter color with the most output you'd want to stick to 4300-5000k Those 10k's depending on the brand may end up being purplish. The tolerances between manufacturers vary greatly.

I'm running 5K's. Honestly anything over 6K then you start to loose usable light for the blue, purple or whatever color shade. Most factory hid systems don't go above 5 or 6k. I've had mine for 2 years with no complaints but I am working on doing a retrofit with projectors.

To answer your question, they are illegal but most times you can get away with it if you stay within factory or maybe a little bluer (sp?) but it always give them (the cops) the right to mess with you.
