has anyone on here modded their hid's (swapping out lenses, bend shields, using washers to get a cleaner cut off line) I heard e46's projectors sucks compared to other oem manufacturers. Wondering has anyone done it and what are your results? heres some example i found online. the this pic is an E46 with ECE lens (its pretty much clear all around the lens, my cars hid len's has this split line through the middle i heard they are E46 BOSCH DOT lens)

Now this is the same projector using washers to increase the distance from the lens to the shield and bulb, using 3 washers

and now with 4 washers

I also read some where that 330ix has the better lens of the e46's they dont have the split line in the middle and their cut off line is cleaner. They use ZKW lens, which are better than ECE ones. I have a 02 330ci and the cut off like looks like **** compared to these pics.
