yes, my bro bought me a pair for my bday couple years ago and they shoot a beam off on the right side of the road and i can hardly see and i have 12000K HID's. just ordered a oem style with the reflective covering the hole inside of the housing unlike these it covers everything but the bottom i believe. my opinion i don't like them one bit.

well its from a german HID manufacture...great HID's don't get me wrong. We have them on all the cars in my fam and have a set of purple on one of them. but as for the head light housing i have now they leak water and dirt in them. not happy with what i got but i like that it looked good but not so much performed on reflection of light.

I gotcha, thats when you just go ahead and save money from an HID kit and do it right the first time and go with some projectors from TRS cause then you will have to seal the headlight up anyway and shouldnt have any leaks

Just do a very light coat of vht on your stock ones but do it right and take all the preperation steps as with any paint project otherwise it will look horrible...if anything goto a paint shop and have them mix black and clear together and shoot your lights with it...there is another member on here that did that and his looks sweet and everything is still visible

it looks like the driver side headlight is a vertical beam pointing off to the right even though i had toyota re-align my lights and the passenger side is a horizontal beam. they (manufacture) do this so that the oncoming traffic or ones in front of you don't get blinded. but they don't realize that it doesn't give you enough light IMO...

If your gonna spend money on new lights id honestly just recommend going ahead and getting projectors and new heaadlight housings from Rockauto.com then retrofit the projectors into those housings and since you wont need the headlight bowl anymore you can just paint it black inside so you will have the smoked look..Thats what i plan on doing anyway

no didn't want to spend time cause the beam will still be the same. i like my light out put more than looks. cause you don't see one thing it could make the hole truck not look good. sucks but gotta sometimes look at safety of keeping what looks good already you know???
