Has anyone tried these projectors?

I've been reading up on doing projectors for my lude. I have hid's in them right now and don't want to be blinding everyone. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with these projectors?

Re: Has anyone tried these projectors?

doesn't seem all that legit. for one it says e46 M3 TSX projectors. which, obviously it isn't, first because those projectors aren't the same, and further down the page where it lists the bulbs, its all OEM halogen based bulbs. which is basically where they take the halogen base and retrofit a projector bulb on them. which is never OEM quality. from the pictures, (and its really hard to tell so i could be wrong) you can't change the bulb when and if it burns out. ebay is always hit or miss. imo the cutoff looks good, but the amt of light could be better.. then again it could just be a ****ty camera. i can't even begin to imagine how they go into your housings either. anything universal isn't always universal.

Re: Has anyone tried these projectors?

I've seen those and they are very narrow beams, crappy output...but I'm used to OEM HID projectors. Compared to stock you will see some improvement. For the work involved to install these might as well retrofit in some E46 OEM HID projectors.
