I agree 55w rocks. They rock especially now that I figured out what was wrong with my setup.

King Hoonigan Mine are actually surprisingly bright, MUCH more than stock and look alot like the projectors in that bottom pic. No hid's or anything like that. I dont know if theres any difference in who you bought them from and all that, seeing how theyre all the same thing. The only thing i really had to do was adjust the cutoff up some because theyre pointed pretty low out of the box.

Slammed_2.0 my projectors are a straight line with no mod and with Morimoto equipment. =]

dcorwin822 Found my fix while I was looking for the link to the washer mod. Some eagle eyes the washer mod isin't needed. See this thread and what turned out to be my issue as well.


If you need the washer spacers check out this specifically pages 10 and 11.

When I installed I just assumed I needed the washer mod. Test before mod! :)

GN Prime how many watts is your hid kit? i know all the slim ones (which i have also)that i came across are 35w. the normal ones are 55w. i have noticed that mine aren't as bright as they should be, but that's because of the wattage. there are a few threads around here that show some good pics. and also my cutoff is like the 2nd pic too:)
