Here's a question for the headlight experts out there....

I got some new super white 9007 bulbs and installed them. When I have the lights on they look fine, but when I flip the brights on, the projection of the light is less than with the regular headlights on. :intrestin:

Is it possible that the light bulbs themselves are in upside down? Is it even possible to put the bulbs in upside down? I am just seeing what all people know before I go and rotate the bulbs 180* tonight...

hmm that's a good question.. I would speculate that the lack of light might be because the focal point is higher than the low beam (which may seem brighter due to the distance on the ground.)

I would test the output by doing the light adjustment on a wall..

I have done it against a wall and the low beams project higher up the wall then the high beams...

I didn't think it was possible to turn the bulbs 180 degrees out since the connectors are keyed.

I'm interesting in seeing if they can be flipped 180.

I was just thinking that it might be the low beam filiment is larger so they look brighter but the high beam was left equal to stock.

I'm having same sort of problem. Bought after market housings and the 9007 bulbs are 180° from original lenses. High beam is lighting lower then low beams. I'm going to remove pins in housings and rotate bulbs to original orientation of old housings.
