I think some fine tuning may be done in the future to see if I can fix up how evenly the beam is spread.

Also got confirmation from the distributor, that the 3 screw version was an old version, and the 2 screw version is now new stock.
Beware of the trouble you'll have just like me with the new 2 screw version!
Definitely looks a lot better. How many spacers did you use? I know the HID bulbs are a bit longer than the halogens, so maybe spacing it out just a bit will fix the beam spread. Mine have a good few dim-spots that are a bit more noticeable driving on roads with no street lights .
I"ll have to give this a try soon.

edit: I just noticed also you're using 55W bulbs in your projectors.
how are those, brightness/temperature wise? i wouldnt mind some brighter headlights :)
