HID are a bad idea for short use intermittent lighting. Reverse lights seems like a really bad HID application.

Nice idea but I think it would blind to many other drivers. Would be cool if you could turn them on and off when needed but not on all the time while in reverse.

I have 55W low profile fog lights under my back bumper. Works great. No problems seeing through tinted campershell windows.

I feel like LED reverse lights are way more practical

especially since ur an automatic OP, the ballast/ballasts wont like the quick on/off everytime u pass the "R" in the shift sequence. Ballasts like to be left on or off for awhile and dont like rapid on/off.
Agreed. Quick cycles will not only burn out the lamps quick, but the ballasts as well. Start-up for lights is the most stressful point of operation. Stick with LED's or add-on halogens IMO.
