If they are out of alignment and/or pointing down, that could be an issue as well. Your lights are over 10 years old now and might just need some tlc, new bubls will help too.

When putting hid's in the stock housing, what most people complain about is the scattering. It may have more light output but its not going to be directed well and possibly have even worse visibility for you.

Case in point, this very recent thread.

Thanks man. I just ordered a DDM 4500k kit last night. I will install them in the stock housings to see how good they are. If not I'll buy the silverstar ultras till I'll be doing a retrofit some time around the holidays. This is only temporary though. Just desperate for any thing.

Can you tell me some good instructions for doing a retrofit?
