I would like to make a thread to post alot of photos of this item as well as a review of the product. There isnt much information about them so I hope this can be a resource for others.

I bought them the other day when they were on sale from Bimmian. They shipped to me by Philadelphia and were here in 3 days with cheapest shipping option. This was my first Bimmian purchase.
I ordered a 4300K HID kit from HPB to use in these. I opted for non canbus as I plan to just code them correctly.
They are well built and the finish on the front is very OEM. The lenses themselves are clear with no ridges or anything. Contrary to what Ive been told these were most definitely H11 bulbs and not 9006.
My one complaint is that they do not list bulb specs on the site, nor on the housing, nor through email when I asked. The item does not come with any sort of paperwork except your receipt. Packaged very well, but no instruction or specs.
Overall frame and housing seems like a durable ABS type plastic. The projector housing and lens assembly are of high quality metal. When shining a flashlight through it made a very sharp cutoff line and good spread of the beam. I will know better and update real results when theyre on the car tomorrow, and even more so when the HID kit gets here.
This thread will be updated as I add more photos and give my opinion of these units.
I installed the housings and they really make the front of the car look better. They match the appearance of the front of the car more, and look great with the stock Xenon projectors. I ran into a few snags while installing them.
It happens to be a major gripe with Bimmian. The bolts that hold the projector housing into the chassis are crap. I have photos of the stainless steel bolts I replaced them with from Home depot for $3. You need (4) of the bolts, and (4) of the nuts. You are replacing the black bolt and the knurled brass bolt where the projector housing is attached to the chassis. I highly recommend doing this now, rather than later on when they break. I snapped two of them during install with minimal force.
Here is what the setup starts with
Here is what happens when you go to install them. It seems like the threading is pressed in place in the knurled top portion, and definitely not made to take any sort of torque on it.
The cutoff line is clear and the spread of light is fine. I will say that with the OEM H11 Halogens, light output is less than ideal. I will be adding more photo once my 4300K HID kit gets here, and more install photos.
Just Angel eyes and Fog lights on. About 3 feet from garage door.
HPB HID kit coming this week. Will update with review of them, more photos, and some more in depth install photos.
HPB H11 4300k Kit
Kit seems solid enough. Bought the one without error cancelling since I am coding out the checks. They match OEM low beam quite nicely, and seem to be of decent quality.

This is the back of the area working in. Alot of space
Attached the ballast to the brake duct using a dremel to cut out the hole for the bolt, and attaching the supplied 3M adhesive pad to the back.
