    if adjusted right they put out pretty good. the cut off line is not straight but you cant expect a retrofit projection with ebay lights. i have 1000k hid's in mine and i had to point them down some because i was blinding people

    Would it be possible to retrofit a different lense/bulb from theretrofitsource.com into these headlights? I assume the lense/bulb arn't too great since they are from ebay u know
