  • question about my rx350 bi-xenon

    hi, FINALLY started doing my retro and just wanted to make sure the projectors were ok before i put them in and had a couple questions.
    so they both have clear lenses. one had 3 lens spacers and had a razor sharp cutoff with a hint of blue. the other had a good cutoff but a little fuzzy and more blue, found out it only had 2 spacers so i put another one in and now the cut off is great but it has a tiny bit of purple. side by side its very obvious.
    i'm def. no expert when it comes to this but can anyone give me any advice on how to make them match. i don't care if i end up with blue or purple, i just want them both to match. both are using matching CBIs.

    thank you

        Color of the cutoff is usually shield positioning. Play with the position of the shield, in and out changes color.

            so gut my cutoff and color perfect. put the head light back together and now its fuzzy, FML. i thought i might have installed it wrong but i put the other headlight on the car with out the plastic lense (to get the aim roughed in) and the cutoff was perfect, i put the plastic lens over it to check the cut off and it made it fuzzy like the other one so obviously its either the shape or material of the lense causing my cutoff to not be sharp. is this normal? output is still great but cut off is about the same as a stock RX lense, maybe a hair worse.

              What car? Some car's headlights do that unfortunately.

                yeah it's normal for lenses to cut down on the sharpness/color/output, but usually it's not that much, unless the lens is curved a lot

                  It's for a 94 Toyota Supra. The lense comes down in front of the projector at about a 45 degree angle. Couldn't believe how bad it got. I'll take some pics tomorrow.

                    you can see in this pic i have the right headlight completed and installed. the left is installed for aiming and without the plastic lense.
                    the second pic is with both headlights completed and installed. pics are 25-30'

                      Aw man that's really rough. I don't know of a way to fix that. Are they OEM headlights?

                      I would ask about this on Headlight Junkies on Facebook. A few members like Lightwerkz have done Supras, never heard of this issue.

                          Typical of 90's lenses to do that. My Skyline headlights have glass outer lens and they give multiple cut offs.
                          You can look at buying or making your own clear lens. Not sure if sanding the factory one will help.

                              These are actually new and completely clear lenses. Not lines to sand.
