Re: just bought these

sorry, but shouldn't you have asked 'are these any good?' BEFORE buying them?

Re: just bought these

If your talking about output, then yes they are no good. You can retrofit it with better projectors, but that's a bitch and a half to do.

Re: just bought these

It's not the hid kit itself. It has to do with the projectors. Those projectors are designed for halogens not hids. They simply give you a pnp kit along with the headlights. The beam is not uniform, there will be hot spots.
