HIGH Five! NHK has officially achieved Projector-Perfection with the 5th gen Bi-LED projectors! If you're looking for the ultimate beam pattern; it's really not going to get any better than this folks. Perfectly balanced beam. The crispiest ECE style cutoff. Unquestionable OEM-quality all packed into a projector that's undeniably easy to install. If we died and went to headlight heaven, the 5.0 would be greeting us at the gate.
PROJECTOR-PERFECTION: There are other projectors that produce brighter hot spots. There are other projectors that have unholy amounts of width. But no other option creates the perfect balance of width & hotspot lux (aka distance) quite like the 5.0. In order to create the ultimate weapon for driving in the dark; NHK baked in best practices from a variety of well-respected OEM and aftermarket projectors. With over a decade of experience, we trust that their latest and greatest equates to the perfect all-around perfomer.
DISTANCE: The hot spot on the new 5.0 is roughly 70% brighter than the already-impressive 4.0 design. While the high beam unloads a lot more volume of light; virtually no additional intensity has been reserved. What that means: You get the maximum benefit from your bulbs & ballasts in default mode--where drivers spend 99% of their time. The controlled decrease in intensity from the hyper-hotspot down through the foreground results in a distribution of light that makes driving at night very comfortable & safe. Why? Because too much intensity on the ground too close to the front of your vehicle will make your eyes adjust, compromising your ability to see very far. Science!
WIDTH: Power is nothing without control, and even the best projectors won't always result in a satisfying output when projected out on the road improperly--so the KEY is really how that light is deployed. Thanks to the beauty in the center of this beast [all new optics package + flat cast cutoff shield] You really end up with a beam pattern that's extremely wide and flat, with zero bowing. But that's not all: The position of the shield has been fine-tuned so that there is a band of intense light that spans side-to-side directly under the cutoff line. RX350 Bi-xenons, S2000's, LS430s, SC430--all of the best from Koito now need to bite their tongue, because that's all they had on NHK prior to the 5.0!
INSTALLATION NOTES: These projectors are an advanced installation product. They DO NOT have a threaded shaft you find on other projectors. These are ideally suited for headlights that already have projectors, but just need an upgrade. They can be installed in standard, reflector bowl headlights. Just make sure you have plenty of room and a stead hand for aligning your mounting holes. You'll have to use the ol' nut-n-bolt method on these bad boys. But fear not, you can pick up a pack of our RetroHardware to help get everything in place.
