Just to make sure I'm not seein things

I'm gonna post a pic of my passenger side headlight. It is hard for the camera to pick this up, but there is a slight color change (very evident in person) between the high-beam and low-beam angel eyes. Does anybody see this? If you can't see by looking on the ring itself, look at the reflection that each ring gives off onto the black headlight trim. Does anybody see a slight color change? I think what caused it was running only two inner rings for like 2-3 weeks while I was waiting for a new ring to come in the mail for my driver's side low beam. Once I got that in and plugged it up, the inner rings had a yellow"er" color. Shortly after, my driver's side inner ring failed and had to get a new one.

Tonight I *might* try to get some better pics if you guys cant see it. Thanks!

Is one ring dimmer than the other or only different colors? I know when the connectors don't have a perfect fit my rings are dimmer/different colors.

Just look at the reflection in the headlight trim. It's obvious then.

Nothing was really wrong at all, just some confusion I think.

How can there be confusion if there are different colors?
