    i'm surprise that the fx has wider beam toward the left than the murano. that might mean the fx has a wider beam than even the porsche biX which is known to be pretty wide.... would be interesting to compare the both - fx vs porsche biX.

    FX is known for its wide pattern.

    E55 has nice center intensity.

    Murano/Porsche is better than I thought it was, plenty wide, but I like the hotspot pattern. Not as wide as the FX hotspot, though...

    IS250, does it come stock with a clear lens? and is that a side-mount projector? might be good for a lens donor, but that width is horrible.


    Thanks again for another great beam pattern comparison, JVX
