why does your passenger light look so far down in the second pic? not a bad cutoff but the beam scatter kinda sucks but i have the same issue with mine...until i eventually do a retrofit.

Hey Ryan, what are in your turn signals???

Edit: I had the same issue with my projectors, they were leveled wayyyyyyyy too low from the factory. I raised them up until my stock halogens reached about the edge of their brightness. I need HIDs lol badly haha ryan can you post up some better quality ones of how they light up the road ahead of you? I want 8000k as well but I want brightness. I live by Glendora Mountain Ride and it's a little dark during night canyon runs ;)

Umm BTW, a long time ago, it was almost proven, that while switching projectors in the ebay headlights does help with the cut-off an beam, about 90% of the time the issue is infact NOT with the projector, but rather the very cheap lenses they put on the headlights.

A guy did a retrofit, and when he did he used clear ebay lenses and it distorted the light all to hell, put OEM in front of the projectors, and helped SOOOO much.

Just in case your wondering of course. =]
