    It's several small, individual lights.

    Cameras make them look like a solid bar, and from a distance greater than a couple of feet they look like a solid bar. Up close you can definitely see the individual lights. I have had them for a couple months now and this was my only real complaint.

    Are you talking about the headlight leveling? It's not a bright/dim adjustment, it adjusts the height level of the beam. @sledstar4

    Does the leveling motor work with spyders?
    Plug n play or is additional wiring/modding necessary?

    Yeah that's so you don't blind oncoming drivers. Hence the low beam.

    I wonder about the light output of the projector. Historically, aftermarket projectors are junk with subpar light output. Anyone? How would they compare to stock? I understand the cutoff, but overall, side by side, are they comparable?
