Nice work, HIDs in a cheap reflector housing, blinding oncoming drivers, throwing light all over the place and to top it off using 8K bulbs which actually have reduced light output when compared to a more white 4300K-6000K bulb.
Try doing it right, check out The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications and HiDplanet : The Official Automotive Lighting Forum to get some knowledge on properly installing HIDs to not only get the most out of them from a driving stand point but also for not ruining the vision of drivers on the other side of the road. Cheap is rarely the best solution.

|Neil F.||smoked or blacked out = less lightput. None of the "good" headlight manufactuers make a blacked out headlight|

They are not projectors. It just a clear center. I don't know what is black. If it is the lens or the reflector but regardless, it is going to reduce the light output.
HID put out a lot of light and will blind other drivers if you do not control the cutoff. True projectors do the best job. Ecodes will also cut down on glare.

|Neil F.||You will get lots of opinions regarding adding HIDs to H4 halogen housings (many of the people have no experiance with them). I've had mine for 3 years. Many that have HIDs will agree that you need to at least put them in European Spec (Ecode) housings. Ecode does not allow as much glare as DOT (US) housings. H.I.D.s on my TJ = WOW! - JeepForum.com|
