So an update, I initially ordered the wrong kit but eventually got the right one, these are the results. So, so much better than the old halogens. Have also set them so they aren't dazzling anyone else. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of LEDs, I'm really happy with the results.

For comparison:

Thats sweet, I saw hid come on market in Aussie years ago but LEDs really have stolen the show on lights in general in the last 5 years. Also if you happen to have an accident and smash a light, LEDs tend to just keep going! Added bonus lol

That's a big improvement.

Might have to do this to the wagon when its back up and running down the track.

I've been a regular headlight polisher for a while now! Its a tad bit annoying

That's a decent improvement! My lights are shocking... I may have to look into this

LEDs aren't road legal,  And unless you go to a half arse wof place you'll fail,
Narva Blue Plus 110s are good light,

I found the HIDs in my P11 very disappointing compared to my first P11 which had halogen low beams.  And yes they were adjusted correctly. I also find the same with my Stagea,  The difference between hi and lo is amazing,  What is handy is having the adjuster as i carry heavy loads some days early morning so can dial them down,

When doing a HID swap into a car which doesn't have them you need to remember to add the adjuster as you need to swap over the whole system to be legal.
