First of all I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a newly registered member from Indonesia. And if I may know, where is this forum based?

I have some questions regarding the CR-V's headlamps unit, I hope I can find the answer here ;)

Does the OEM HID Projector Headlamp need extra device like ballast or control unit that sold separately or already in-built into this headlamp unit and we can just use it right away by installing on the CR-V and plug the D2S bulb?
I'm planning to buy the HID Projector Headlamps that use real HID bulbs (D2S) very soon, but I really need some solid information regarding this headlamp before spending the money on those in pair.

I'm from Indonesia, in here all variants of CR-V are equipped with Halogen Projector Headlamps, and I really want to use Xenon to get the maximal lights output, because the lights output from Halogen on Projector Headlamp are decreased if compared to reflector ones, IMHO Halogen bulb only match for reflector headlamp. But I tried installed H1 HID kit on my CR-V Halogen Projector Headlamps and I'm really frustrated about the beam pattern especially on the passenger side, the beam/light output on passenger side won't prevail and the beam is not pointing straight to the front but to the left/the curbside.

Could somebody tell me what really are the problems could be?

I took a picture of the beam pattern of my CR-V using H1 HID Kit on Halogen Projector Headlamps.


And compare to the beam pattern of someone's CR-V that using H1 HID Kit on Halogen Projector Headlamps as well but the driving side is opposite, you can see the difference between the light output on the passenger side (mine is on the left while the picture below is on the right side).


Please compare it to the beam pattern on the left headlight output from my pic with the other one beam pattern on right headlight output, because mine is RHD while ccacp89103's is LHD, which actually the lights function is illuminating the curbside of the road.
