Are the grand prix headlights dimmer then most? One of the big things that some are addressing is electrical load. Running both would add an extra 70-110 watts or the equivalent of about 1/7hp if I'm not mistaken. Which could be why you haven't seen noticeable results.

I think they look good by the way.
