Aftermarket HID Projector Quality?
 
For those who have the 08+ OEM spec aftermarket HID projector headlamps (Eagle Eyes brand) how it the quality of the beam? How does it compare to the OEM projector? Good quality or a bit lacking?

Thanks for any input and/or pics you can provide!

I don't have Eagle Eyes brand, but my HIDs are a lot crisper, cleaner, focused, and brighter compared to regular headlamps in a projector

I found this. They look decent, but not quite as good.

Curious, what is the purpose of the notch in the cut off?

The cutoff will always be lower on the left hand drivers side. This is done in order to prevent oncoming traffic from being blinded on 2 way streets/highways if you're in the far left lane.

Yup i had one on mine. It was an eagle eye head light that I purchased from AM Auto parts.com. I wounded up going back to the factory oem hid headlight. The beam was not as good. It had a prism effect. Also when I was driving behind one of my friends they said it looked like totally 2 different headlights (1 eagle eye on driverside and 1 oem hid on passenger side). They said it looked like 2 motorcycles riding behind them. Here is a link to the thread with the comparison.
