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.
