I just ordered a HID kit for them, I find them just too dim. It looks like they come from an aftermarket OEM type company. Hopefully the HID kit helps.
Curious how the HID kit helps. Typically HID headlights use an entirely different projector. Could you find Lexus RX headlamp buckets that were originally HID? Seems that would bee the optimal solution. Either way, curious what your result is.

FYI, Got my new Ford Countour (ha) headlights. They were exact replacements of OEM (IE, OEM used TYC brand ALSO).

I then bought an HID kit. It installed very easily (Kensun on Amazon). Very nice white light. 2 issues tho:

1 - The pattern of light, likely because of the slightly different bulb geometry is not uniform. There are bright spots and such, especially when I was aiming against the garage doors.

2 - I have to sort out an issue I think I am having with my daytime running lights. After HID install, with motor running and coach in gear I noticed my high beam blue indicator light was lit. If I turn on headlights the high beam indicator turns off. After a little bit of research I have concluded I may have a DRL relay that reduces voltage to the headlights when headlights are off and coach is in gear. I may need just a regular relay so HID's are always on.

More to do, but I will say the fresh headlamp buckets sure make the coach look incredible. So much so I just ordered a batch (8) of side indicator lights. Ironically they are from a 70's vintage Jeep ;-)

Installed my HID kit in our '12 Revolution and they look great. Very easy to install, had to reverse the main connector around due to the polarity being different, but fired them up and they have a nice bright beam to them. I may need to adjust them, but very pleased so far. For only $40 I was surprised how well constructed they seem to be, I would have paid more for some regular higher end bulbs.
