New Clear Headlihts = Not Happy!

So i got my new clear headlights and had my buddy at Ford install them. Night time comes and i cant see chit!! Took them back the next day had him re-adjust.. and sill cant see chit! The lighting is horrible. its just scatted.. its hard to explain. Tonight ill try and take some pics and post the up. I even bought some Sliverstar Ultras and could tell a difference but the way the light shines out on the street is very bad, very scattered. Oh and adjusting them is a damn nightmare!

Anyone else have problems with these lights? Did i get an effective pair?? Send me a Ebay link to where you guys got yours and maybe ill by another set and try them. Leaving for Denver in a week so need a fast fix!

Please help!

Re: New Clear Headlihts = Not Happy!

well, with my HID's I have Alot..of scattered light, so I don't see much of an issue, even having them aimed nice and low,

And adjusting them is hell, Just like my experience with the stockers.. cant really get away from that with a 90's ford truck

if any thing aim them a bit higher than normal and see if you can more visibility, And what seller on Ebay? How much did you pay$?

Re: New Clear Headlihts = Not Happy!

Do they had a reflector in front of the bulb? If they do you need a light that shines straight ahead into the reflector. Stock bulbs have a gray tip that cannot be used

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known
