Default Installing projectors?

Just found these projectors with an hid kit. How would you install them?

You would have to take apart you headlamp assembly.

Looks like the actual projector just "bolts" into the housing. You would have to cut off your existing reflector deal

Looking at the pictures the glare is horrible. Make sure you do some research on how to do it correctly before making a decision. If I remember correctly www.hidplanet.com is a great place to start.

Yeah I'm confused by that too. It says that "more bluer light output on the cut off" and the only difference in pictures I see is that there is more blue light in the center cut off.

at the cutoff light hits a bend and you get some separation. This is why you see a blueish color.
