No post processing adjustments so it's fairly accurate.

Right away I noticed a difference in the driveway I was happy

Great pic but too bad you left fog lights on in H11 pic pic and turned them off in the H9 pic. That's the only thing that messes up the pic.

If not for that it would be the best pic I have seen of the comparison between the tow different bulbs and it is exactly what I see in my experience. At a quick glance other people might argue that the H9 isn't that much better because the fog lights skew the results.

I've been running H9 only for years now. Great conversion. I even bought an adapter so the next time one burns out, I do not have to file anything down. I filed down the part in the adapter instead.
