can't tell the distance in the pic, but looks like you might need to aim them down... you are maybe 20 ft from the fridge and you are head high already at that distance... just a thought, looks good though!

Nice, but what you really need to do is save up for some paint.

I know some guys posted that you need to lower the aim, but surprisingly no one has mentioned the glare.
So I will. Wow, glare.

Shoulda bought silverstars man. No unsafe glare, and still respectable light output while retaining your high beam. Which is most likely required by law.

they "glare" because the HIDs are not in HID headlamps (Projectors)
HID bulbs are supposed to be used with projector housings NOT regular housings like our trucks have. change your headlights to projectors and lose the glare.

Ive always heard putting HID's in aftermarket projectors will scatter the light right into oncoming traffics eyes.... The correct way would buy actual projectors out of an acura or any other car and fab them in.
