HID projector retrofit output, a bit more light everywhere. These are cell phone camera low beam shots. I can rework those housings with projectors if you are interested...

That is Scott's nice way of saying "your headlights may look nice but the light coming out of them are blasting all over the place and probably pissing off everyone on the road"

Your photo only proves how bad they are.

I am simply saying that more output can be had with the same basic look....HID and LED in reflector housings never produce more usable light than stock. To each his own, just options!

Please note I mentioned I needed to aim them still , they were fiddled with quite a bit when had hids in there.
They are nowhere near aligned..
