Default Projetor headlights?

So i installed these headlights and they're very dim...they dont project light very well. The stock ones i took out were nice and bright so i have no clue why they would be so dim. I checked them on my garage door and the outline is there but it doesnt seem right...anybody else have these?

These what? Brand? Model? Might be useful if you're looking for a comparison.

have you checked out the thread about installing relays. probably not getting enough power. might even burn out and be stuck with no lights.

give it a read.

Even stock lamps will often see a major improvement from this.

BTW, piss poor lighting could also be due to cheap housings which don't actually focus the light where you need it. IMHO the only aftermarket H$ housing worth a crap are Cibie e-code housings and perhaps Hella's E-code housings.
