Its a bit hard to tell how bright yours actually are due to the strobing effect of the camera.

1) I used the adapter harness method
2) They are US-spec lamps (I appreciate that they lightly smoked the orange reflectors on this version, btw; although I would've preferred the clears)

The J Blades are very bright in the garage with the garage lights on (low beams off) and very bright with the low beams on at night. During daytime driving, I can still see them reflecting off of the car in front of me if we're close. But if you get out and look at them from the front, they just don't seem to be as bright as they should be or as bright as other XJs I've seen.

My question is since the headlights do not appear to have been opened up, are all the required modifications done by rearranging the pins in the plug or is there something else involved.
Hey, can you send me their contact info? I'd love to just have a plug & play solution, and are comfortable shipping to the US. I'm new here so I can't message you, so if you can message me you can email me at [email protected] Thanks!
