  • LED beam pattern on new projector headlights is showing two bars

    Greetings all,

    I swapped out my stock headlights for ones with projectors and am using LED bulbs.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this wired beam pattern? I see two bars, instead of one clean, crisp, bright one.

    from inside the car 1
    from inside the car 2
    outside of the car 1
    outlined example

    any help is appreciated.

      Who knows really. You installed a set of poor quality headlights that do nothing but throw light on the ground with a fancy cutoff and no real light control. And then put a horrible set of LED bulbs with no optical performance.

      Not trying to bust your chops man but please reinstall new OEM headlamps and then look at a high performance H11 bulb or other good LED bulbs. (search my posts)

        Yeah even after you adjusted them, you have 0 distance. Those LEDs are trash and should never be used.

            Basically, an LED is supposed to mimic a halogen filament. That LED does not, it just throws light everywhere. You need a quality set of LEDs. The other problem is that those aftermarket lights tend to have mediocre to terrible projectors (depends really). But fix the first problem first.
