And by "factory xenon" do you mean you have factory HID in your low beams? How does the factory HID compare to your new high beam HIRs?
Yes I have factory HIDs. They match up nicely. The biggest issue I had with the factory high beams is there was a smallish gap between the projector cutoff on the HIDs and the bottom light scatter from the halogens. The 9011s fill that void of light in perfectly. The brightness difference is noticeable on a bright sunny day! The light is more of brighter white and less of yellowish color. Bang for your buck it's a GREAT mod. I got these per Daniel Sterns recommendation, well worth it.
