The HID low beam conversions on the pre '05 lights is exceptional. Maybe the new low beam reflector/lens is not as good for HID as the earlier one was.
Be sure the lamp is fully seated, and if it is, unclip it and slowly pull it out while it is on to see if the beam changes for the better. If it does, it can be spaced out by a washer the correct thickness. May have to experiment.
By the way, low beam should not reach much farther down road than the original did, just give you a huge gain in light for that distance with some additional reach. Down road reach is where high beam is supposed to be used anyway. If you get much more reach with HID on low beam you will be blinding oncoming drivers more.
