Default HID Projector headlight problems..

Well guys I don't know if you might know anything but... I have anzo projector halo headlights... and I have put HID's in them earlier this year ... Butttt the beams are aligned, horribly, basically all over the road... I have got them aligned the best that they will go... however when the regular h4 bulbs are in the beams are aligned perfectly... I dont know if the HID's can work with these headlights or not? Has anyone else with these headlights have this problem?

I am a little confused at your post.
So you put HIDs in the projectors. or the other one?
HIDs will work best in the projector. The open area is just like stock headlights and spreads it all around. That bulb is also for the high beam, if I am looking at the correct headlights

, which you don't really need if you have HIDs.

With HIDs in the projectors you should have a cut off line, see below

I'm confused...I thought projectors would improve the beam pattern.

im confused too because thats basically the purpose of projectors to that the beam is not scattered all over the place so i think the op should reword his post and make it more understandable

Sorry bout that... Basically I have installed HID's into those ANZO Headlights.... This is whats happening, the beam is nothing like the picture... its not as focused... the light is scattered and doesnt provide the brightness regular HIDs would... however when I put the regular halogen bulb back into the projectors... I get a focused bright beam... i'll have to take some pics tonight

When you are looking straight at them are you blinded. How far do you have to move to be blinded? You will know when you are in the beam path from the projectors. You may try doing some type of shims to adjust the headlight if necessary.
