Okay Donald, educate the old man. I saw Jake's vid and see what these lenses do, but please explain to me what they are actually doing and why you would put them on your car. I'm not bashing, just curious; never seen them before.

Watch my vid and you will learn




In short, OEM glass is very hazy/cloudy and diminishes the cutoff line and output. These lenses are clear, give an insanely crisp cutoff and more light output.

Thanks Solidjake. It looks like a good winter day project. I'll have to add it to my list.

The existing lenses in our projectors are foggy and literally look like sand blasted glass. Terrible choice of material to try to shine light through. These lenses are crystal clear and allow all the collars of light to pass through correctly

Thanks. Like I said, it's on my list of things to do, once I get through all the things that will leave me stranded if they break. It's high on the list tho, my night vision gets worse every year.
