disappointed with "upgraded" projector/halo lights

I have a set of "upgraded" projector/halo headlights on the benz. I am overall NOT PLEASED with the light output AT ALL. They really upgraded the look of my 98 e300td, but as far as functionality, they stink. My biggest issue is with the low beams and the fact that there is such a cut off from light to dark within about only 30 paces or so in front of the car and its completely black. Not fun to drive when its dark and deer are known to dart out from everywhere!

Is there an upgrade kit that will work with aftermarket projector lights? Has anyone done this? I got them from ikonmotoring on ebay (i know-sigh). Any watchouts as I pursue this endeavor? Or should I scrap these all together? They appear to be manufactured quite well in other regards except actual light output.

you should have (then again, you have aftermarket so who knows)
castle looking adjusters above each headlight (lift hood for look see).
they control vertical and horizontal beam adjustments. did you try to
raise the vertical adjustment and perform a headlight alignment as
shown in the owner's manual?
