    In my reflector, the larger opening of the metal hood faces up.
    Is this correct for a HID bulb?

    That is not uncommon today.It has to do with the reflector housings and beam cut off patterns I have seen the same on cars.

    This poor quality OEM reflector certainly has a poor quality beam...with no discernable cutoff.
    I was hoping to hear it was upside down.
