Geez - what a difference! I am worried about all oncoming traffic now - that's how bright they seem to be! (Well, actually I'm more worried about being caught with non-DOT approved headlights). I have fiddled with beam adjustment screws, only to find out that even in their lowest position possible (plastic screws almost all the way unscrewed), projector headlights still produced an amazing amount of light! I hope ppl don't get mad at me on the road - but it significantly improved my night vision! I won't be using high beams anymore, for sure
Not a bad deal off Ebay for 280$ for German-made headlighs.
P.S.: I didn't attach any pics 'cause they don't look that good - you really gotta see it!
However, Ebay keeps past auctions for only 30 days, which expires Dec 16, so today's the last day to view it!
These headlights were purchased via Bekkers Import, but never installed ($390 list price).
P.S.: I asked a buddy to drive his car straight at me, then drove behind him to see how annoying/bright my beams are. In a face-on direction, he said there's waaaay too much light. I think of buying some washers to put behind front upper screws, 'cause plastic height-adjuster screws are out to their limits.
I don't think you will get caught for the lights, unless where you live is really strick. I have actually had people flash there brights at me when I have my lows on so then I flick on the highs and really kill them.

I actually figured how to adjust the lights so they don't annoy other people. Got a few washers and inserted 2 behind each headlight holder (but before the height adjustment screw - those plastic screws are too short, by the way). Then, to level them and check the brightness, I went about 50 meters away from the car, and made sure both headlights are level (you know it when you lean towards the ground and suddenly both headlights become really bright at the same time - ellipsoids have a sharp light cut-off line). If they're not level, you'll see one light much brighter than other at some point (see the pic kamikazinyc has attached above :P )
Now my car doesn't stand out much among the crowd at night - but my night vision is still 70% or so better than with stock headlights.

how did you do the fog hid conversion? [/b][/quote]
You need to do some cutting on the bulb and the housing. Dremel and some ballz don't worry you can do it. If you do miss it up you can get a set of clear glass fogs like these I'm thinking about it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=2448384839
