  • M-led 2.0 in solstice

    After my fx-r projectors burnt out due to 55w ballasts https://www.hidplanet.com/forums/for...retrofit/page2 i decided to go with the morimoto m-led 2.0.
    Install was much easier than the old fx-r's, just had to enlarge the hole in reflector to 36mm and it fit right in, minor trimming to fit the fan and voila. Needed to find larger washer though, the included one would only bite that 1mm thin part of the reflector on the back.
    Also installed some panamera 2.0 shrouds, but after installing everything on the car i noticed the passenger one was crooked for some reason... doh will have to take the light apart and see if i can realign it.
    Anyhoo the hotspot on these lights is much bright than the old hid's, but the width is just not as wide as the hid's. Also you can kind of hear the fan spinning when you're close to the headlights.
    Overall i'm pretty satisfied with these, i just hope i don't have any issues and have to take the lights apart, you can't easily take the led out like with hid's.

        One thing i don't like about these is the step in cutoff, its way too tall and wide. At 100ft away its the width and height of a car. Also because of the tall height you have less light on the drivers side because the cutoff is much lower.

          From the garage wall picture, it isn't that obvious to me whether the hotspot is too far from the elbow (i.e. lower start of cutoff) or not. If it isn't then the fact that the right side lights up more shouldn't affect light on your side of traffic, no? Maybe there's something else about the beam pattern on your side of traffic that's causing this visibility issue.
