Wondering if anyone else thinks the high beams don't really add any extra "brightness"? Not sure if it's cause of the actual head lights being lower than usual, but they don't really seem to do anything when the high beams are on and I have yet to have someone flash their brights at me when I forget they're on. At best they might make the speed limit and similar signs light up more, but that's it.

HID's or LED's?
To be honest I'm not sure. I'll have to look at the sticker. Only had it about 5wks and just been going back and forth to work with it. I'm in Michigan and work long hours, it's cold and gets dark early so I haven't really had the time to check it out and learn all about the vehicle. I wanna say they look like HID's though.

If they’re hid you could try swapping the bulbs to 5000k, that’s the brightest bulb temp. I swapped in 6000k and they seem brighter than stock. I will agree they’re a little on the dimmer side than past cars I be had. Before the blazer I had an 08 528i bmw with stock hid and those were brighter. Car before that I put in custom FXR projectors and those things lit up the road like daytime.

Should check out the DRL adapters I have made and posted in the for sale section. Keeps the DRLs on the high power setting even when the headlights are on. Definitely adds some extra light to the poor headlights.

I just replaced my HID bulbs with lucas lighting H2l D3S. Perfect focus and cutoff of lower beam. Pricey at 300 bucks online directly from them, no sales tax or shipping, but the cheaper ones are risky. They may produce same lumen output, but focus won't be accurate.
