Ok, I've tested these now for 2 nights (one of which it was raining)...and I must say it is a worthwhile improvement in light output.
...
The 9005 bulbs are rated at 1700 lumens as compared to 1000 for the 9006.

Although obviously not as bright as highbeaming the oncoming traffic, have you tried having a friend drive towards you in your car with the upgrade? I find xenons to be rather glaring right at the moment they're pointed right at you, like when coming around a turn.
