I have a 2014 Limited w/ the stock HIDs. However, I find the throw / brightness of these lights to be less than impressive. The distance is not that great, the color could be cleaner & brighter, and it seems to angle off in a weird shape when it reaches the edges closer to the vehicle. Am I just too picky on this? Do I have a weird set of headlights? In my bimmer I felt like i was driving in the day time almost with those headlights. I feel like I am at half power at night and can see about half the distance sitting high up in a truck vs low down in my old car. Any alternative bulbs or anything that fit the stock lights? thanks
No you're not too picky in this regard. I too had similar complaints and wishes with the outwardly throw. The rest of the light output was 100% satisfactory for my needs.
The ONLY way to get light out and low like you want is a projector swap. The bulb isn't going to do it alone. The EvoX-R projector is darn near a direct bolt in (it needs some fine tuning to be perfect). [MENTION=122444]bilinvic Retrofits[/MENTION] could hook you up with a projector swap. There's also another very reputable fella doing retro's but he isn't a vendor here so I won't mention his company.
