Hella 550... Not satisfied

I installed a pair of Hella 550's on a BAMF Bar behind my satoshi and am really not impressed with their actual light patern. Would HID fix this? I'ts been Aimed properly and wired super clean..... Help

Hid will help but they are not a good light to begin with

well..... My original intention was to convert them anyway and now I'm not so sure I wanna waste the money. 55W is 55W in my book and unless the HID's actually have higher output from the same watt IDK? 43k-5k color temp would make that big of a diffrence in actual power output.
