    could they be projector lens fault or a problem from the h11 bulb ?

    So that’s the morimoto projector and morimoto hid bulbs? I’d send that pic to their support.

    So you just installed morimoto hid bulbs into the stock reflector/headlight. Does your bulb look like this with the support running down the length of the bulb on one side? My guess is that your dark line on the road is from that support. I don't know if it's possible to flip the bulb 180 so that the line isn't visible on the road, but I would look and see if you can rotate the bulb in the back of your headlight. I haven't seen how the h11 bulb base is setup from morimoto to know if it can be rotated at all.

    You should be able to rotate the bulb so the electrode faces down. That may eliminate the black lines.
