lol it really wasn't that complicated. this is my first car and i've never worked on cars or modded anything b4 in my life. the headlight swap was 25mins and i only ran into issues with the angel eyes because i had no experience with it b4. But it was a simple install. and there's lots of pics detailing all the steps

yeah its a direct swap, its the exact same thing except for the chrome piece is now darker. mike at hillbish quoted me for 90 dollars for the grill a couple months ago. i think its gonna look a lot better just painting it black though, theres no more chrome left on your front end so it wouldnt match..

No offense, but I was asking the purchaser who has seen the results in person. He said, "right now output is not very good i can tell you that, cut off is alot better than stock."

That's why I asked about the light output. I would imagine the cut-off to be significantly better directly because of them being projectors. Halogen designed headlights aren't designed to cut off like projectors are.

Until you see the units yourself or work for the company that creates them, you can only speculate, and again no offense, but speculation doesn't answer my question.

I probably sound like an ass, that isn't what I'm going for, I would just prefer an explanation from the guy who owns them.
