Typically, cars built with HIDs in mind have a sort of blind built in inside the housing to direct the light appropriately. Also, it's possible that the bulbs just aren't positioned correctly within the housing to direct the light appropriately. Much like trying to burn stuff with a magnifying glass. The magnifying glass and the sun have to be positioned just right.

My best suggestion is to buy a great set of halogen bulbs (Sylvania zXe) and if it still bugs you, invest in an LED Light bar.

Lenses are positioned properly. I'm going to buy xenon lenses and replace the stock ones in my headlights as they have the golf ball style lenses that restrict light output.

I'm talking about where the HID bulb sits in relation to the projector lens within the housing. It is proper in relation to the light output by a halogen bulb, but it would not be correct for an HID bulb, especially if the housing wasn't designed with an HID in mind.

I put Sylvania ZXE in all (high, low, fog) the lights of my '20 Titanium. I just replaced them with LEDS. The ZXE are better than stock, but the LEDS are the best. If you want a cheaper upgrade, I'm looking to sell all 6 of the Sylvania ZXE bulbs for $20.00 plus shipping. I only ran them for 4000 miles and they work fine. They just didn't have the pure white that I wanted and got with LEDS. Contact me at [email protected] if interested.

Are they a direct replacement?

They're many different brands out there. I bought mine on Amazon, and the brand was Auxito. The high and low beams were a direct plug in. For the fog lights I had to notch out the back of the stock housings (plastic) to get them to fit. If you check, GSR lighting makes a mini LED that may fit right in. Either way you will be greatly impressed with the difference.
