Is there a way to focus the beam pattern? I know how to aim them, but the pattern of the light is somewhat jagged at the top. Like where the top of the beam ends it's a sharp contrast where the headlight beam stops and darkness begins (people w/ HID should know what I mean). Well this ending point is not a flat line. It is jagged and somewhat annoying. Can I do anything to even out the beam so it is a nice and even contrast?

Dude, your lights seem to be doing some weird stuff. From what I gather, you have followed directions and done what members have suggested. You know better than I that we all help when and if we can.

Good luck to all of you in this thread with HID problems.

Yeah..Rooz...remember...T-Mac, Komodo, and a few other folks had wiring problems right after swapping their headlights....I think my problem is most similar to Komodo's...as you recall his car died whiles driving...but it was a fuse relay that he needed to replace...

Also those dudes got Depo...so I kind of figured I would save my ass from any problems by getting ZKWs but no cigar...In fact, it seems like I got it the worst of all of us....

I take blame for messing up my car...cause I knew the risk I took. But I had no idea wiring simple headlights can fuck up the entire car!

Also Umnitza should really send some sort of paperwork when they sell $700 equipment! That is sad!

I wonder why their voice message announces that they get "...high volume calls..." when they could simply send instructions and documentations and cut their phone call volume in half! used used

Whats up with that UMNITZA! Is paper and ink so expensive in california?

dude, the lights work...I don't suspect the lights at all. But now my car is dead due to one of the problems I've been listing in these posts...

so I got a week before BMW is scheduled to fix my car to either fix my car myself or get a cheaper more local mechanic to come by and diagnose my car....
