Headlight lens thoughts

I bought a set of lens off ebay 7" Diamond Cut Round Projector Headlights Lights Lamps H4 Bulbs Left Right | eBay. They looks good in the picture. But once installed i'd be better off with 2 candles and mirrors. So i'm back at square one i've been looking at the ipf and kc. Just wanted to get some tried and true items. Looking to get a huge improvement over the stock sealed beam junk.

Can the bulb be removed from the housing? If so you can try a different bulb instead of a whole new set up

i did the hella e codes and upgraded the wiring i also added 55/100 watt bulbs also from hella and wow what a difference, the stock setup was about like using a flashlight the new setup is amazing and it only cost about $150 and a few hours of my time

OP - if you like the looks- keep the housings and replace the H4 bulbs with some brighter ones. They should be much brighter than your stock bulbs. 55w h4's are pretty cheap.

X2. I put these in my KC housing. They will fit yours too. When you turn on the brights they are like off road lights. Totally insane. Read the reviews. They are $8 a piece.
