The D2S projector pattern isn't superior to the H4 out of the box but with a nibbler along with the extra lumens, it can be.[/QUOTE]

Can you elaborate on that...not understanding.

Here is the quote from one of the emails regarding heat:

>>>with the 35W setup, heat of the unit is actually lower than the stock 55w halogen.
>>> The 50w HID setup, in contrast is hotter than the stock 55w halogen
>>> so you are more likely to have heat-related issues with that

He also said that the 50W ballasts can have heat related issues over time. My fuel range and aging butt give the ballast plenty of cool-down opportunities.

I asked about heat because some inmates had reported signs of heating using 50W HIDs in stock reflectors. This is a little different situation as very little of the light is hitting the original reflector with a projector setup, but I rarely have the time to do things once, let alone twice. Obviously his reply is not based on experience and he was working with a customer who was limited to a $160 price tag (more or less a gift certificate situation) so I got what I paid for. Maybe I will see if they will do an exchange...
