Think I answered my own question....
Had my old pnp kit from other car and swapped it in just now. Compared it to my h9's, and the h9's have "smoother" light output more focused in the center (thus would shine further down the road).
And wow, look at that ridiculous glare on the pnp hid kit. Funny thing is, it's not really noticeable until you take a picture and then look at the picture. That is ridiculous.
