Look at chart on page 11-13.

A legal test used on regular Halogen bulb and HID bulb.


Chart shows the Low beam from a HID bulb inside a halogen housing throws so much glare as if it was a High beam from a Halogen bulb.
Most luxury car hids are so bright, that I have to look away as they approach

It not level its like you have the adjustments to tight in the center. Other than that looks good.

it's a controlled glare though. the beam is coming out more straight then scattered. which (and i could be wrong) is probably why when you roll past a car with hid's and projectors the light always looks like it's flickering. not necessarily an on and off flicker, more like a switch between blinding and not
