    I finally put together a very basic projector comparison. The main point here is just to show the different output patterns produced by different projectors. Ideally this would be done about 30'+ feet from a 100'+ section of blank wall. Eventually I will update with a outdoor location to show the true performance gains that can be achieved with a retrofit. For now this is just to give everyone a basic idea of the light patterns from each projector we offer. I also threw in the oem 2013 for comparison and will update soon with a halogen, :poop:, shot for comparison.

    Ill do the low beams first then highs. Some have better lows, some have better highs, some are wider. All projectors are hand tuned for optimal performance, the LS460 is solenoid mod/ultra high beam mod. Note - the amount of foreground lighting the FXR and EvoX-R put out, it basically eliminates the need for fog lights. Cutoffs do not appear as crisp or colorful as they do at normal viewing distance. MH1 is 35w, the rest are 50w. Please feel free to ask any questions.

    Right, its as wide as the 460 and has better highs, lol.

    Yeah I didn't even realize how narrow they are. The high beams are great but its still a very compressed output pattern and has a lack of foreground lighting. Not saying its bad, its still a HUGE improvement from the halogens.
