Don't worry about the oncoming traffic, they prolly don't give a shit about you anyways.

Hella Elipsoid!

Whatever you do.. don't buy the Eurolite H4 conversion housings.. Bosch ones are nice but they don't have any better beam pattern then the sealed lights.

Its tru when compared to regular 9006 bulbs, not when you compare them to HIDs .

9006 light output sucks ass.

Any H-series bulb is better, + better selection.
Its not so much that the US spec headlights suck, its the bulbs.

HID's will exaserbate the cutoff line...so it's even more apparent. Just make sure your lights are aimed properly so you're not pissing everyone off.
