NHK's classic, high performance Bi-LED projectors, now with a threaded shaft for easy installation! 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.
DISTANCE: The hot spot on the Gen1 is already impressive. Then 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 projectors 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 Gen1!
INSTALLATION NOTES: Generally, these are as simple as they come for installs. If you're working with reflector style headlights that use a dual filament bulb (H4, H13, or 9007), these should bolt right in. Other headlights will require minor modifications to fit. You can always snag our RetroHardware kit to help make the process easier for headlights that have an existing projector.
