    I just upgraded my low beams with XenonDepot Xtreme HID’s....easy to install and the brightness is incredible compared to the stock bulbs. I’m really pleased.

    One question....the step in the headlight cut off line seems pretty large...is this normal?

    Any feedback or help would be great!

    I think that's still a decent cutoff; you've got the steps, yes, but no scattered glare. Might want to perhaps try adjusting them down a bit more and see if it flattens out a little more? Might be catching a small reflection or something.

    I installed XD hids also and had to adjust my beams down because I was blasting people in the face.

    I had to adjust down just a little bit. With the halogens it was fine but the increase with the HID and I got flashed a couple of times.

    Did your HID’s have the same step on the left side?

    What do you mean by step?

    The light should be lower on the driver's side. As you move toward passenger the pattern should rise.
