No projectors with HID? You're an a-hole. But seriously, you're wasting those bulbs by not controlling their beam. A good projector will make them 100% better for everyone.

No I have projectors in my truck and they suck!!! My buddy have nice led lights in stock headlights and his are the brightest lights I've ever seen. They car controlled fine and light up the road in front of his car, driving to Alabama and back for world finals threw the mountains in pitch black his headlights we far better then every other car on the road. Projectors arnt for everyone. these headlights were $100 shipped with two 6000k lights n ballast. That's a nice deal.

And I hate projector headlights when they come stock in cars. They are distracting coming at you because as your car goes down the road the car moves up and down because the roads are bumpy and with projectors having that cutoff point you can see the cars light change colors like bluish/white because that projection lens is like a cat eye. Idk I hate them.

did they come with full digital ballasts with voltage reg's built in? I wont personally run hids without projector. I hate that "lens glow" affect from diffracting light though it wouldn't be too bad with crystal clear lenses like those

He said 6k bulbs so I'm assuming that means a stock replacement, not a HID conversion? If so, they should be the exact same as stock, just a little more blue.
