What model car do you have and what brand projectors did you buy? My Hellas are amazing with 35W HID bulbs, I have found myself when driving with halogens with the brights on to be bright lighting people and getting flashed because I don't realize they are on high beam because my projectors with HIDs lit up the road right in front of me way better. I would suspect that either the projectors are cheap, or they are HID projectors, which I guess in theory would lower your light output with halogens, but I haven't actually seen a comparison.

I would assume if it scatters halogen lights it would HID as well. You might either have a poor product that needs to be returned on warranty (if there is one) or it is just a company that makes a low quality product, hopefully it will work out in a positive way for you, best of luck with it.

If the light pattern isn't good with halogens, it's only going to be worse with HIDs; not to mention you'll blind the living hell out of everybody coming towards you. ebay stuff is hit or miss when it comes to this sort of thing.

Good dip beams (low beam) should have a nice, sharp cut off below which all of the light is projected. An extended on curb (passenger side of car) light is a sign of good light design.

It's been a while...but have you fixed your lights yet? What model is your BMW, you should check out our Preadator V2's. I picked them up for my E46. Took me a little over an hour to install, but they look SWEET.

Get OEM Hella projectors, that is the way to go in my opinion.
