my "cutoff" is the same...having those ufo like images about the "line". I personally like it as it lights up signs far away but I have never been flashed.

You are joking...right? If not, have you not read this thread and the many others like it regarding mobileHID.com? You should just get some off eBay because they will be way cheaper and there is no difference in quality

you wanna throw an hid kit in, thats fine. llooks ok. but dont act like it functions the way its supposed to.

there is a difference between projectors made for halogen and projectors made for hid. you have an hid bulb behind halogen projectors and thats why you are getting the poor results and very bad cut-off that will be having oncoming traffic saying wtf when they have to cross paths with you.

:-(

dont let it get you down, and if you muster up the courage...retro the projectors to get the results that make true HID systems beneficial. best of luck. take it easy
cutoff, proper

thank you. this how HID is supposed to function. no rationalizing will make it any better. no you wont see signs better, you will just blind people whether they choose to bright you or not. be respectful of other people on the road.

okay...i should of clarified...the HID rock for what it is. yes i do know that it is not a good cut-off, but for what it is the visability is much better than stock. i do own a e92 335, although BMWs dont really make that great HID lights and my family owns a lexus LS430 IMO they make the best HID on the market...so i do know what a "proper" HID should look like. but than again this is an entery level car with a cheap (price, not quality) HID kit...so for what it is, it does its job well. and i actually tested the light level and facing my e92, it wasnt that bad at all. im not blinding people on the road, if thats your concern.

hey guys, the special price is only because I'll be out of town for a few days and won't be able to ship out kits. So - in exchange for some patience, customers are getting a break on the price.

mnscionxb - please forward over your paypal receipt to [email protected] - let me help you out bud.
