So I talked with one of their guys, Dustin. And they told me that this is just conductive puddy that is used to help keep the housing together. Anyone else experienced this? I am not too worried about it. I just expected each one to look like the super clean one above.

Yea it looks like that could be true BUT can't they do better and keep it off the LED?

Luckily I didn't have any issues with mine.

That's kind of what I am saying. Especially for $150, I think having high expectations is not a bad thing. Even for aesthetics.

I mean hey, if they are reliable and bright as hell then I will still be happy

Yeah that's just shoddy quality control. Shouldn't be sending stuff that looks like that to customers.

Maybe they'll refund you 20% or something like that, or give you a credit towards your next purchase. Doesn't hurt to ask....

I really like the Morimoto 2 stroke 2.0 bulbs but the only thing is if your headlights act as DRL then you may need the antiflicker harness which may then require you to cut a hole in your headlight caps.

I must say. I am impressed so far. Easy as can be installation. No collar adjustment so far. Will post some pictures when dark of beam pattern. Happy so far despite my original quality control issue.
