    I realize they aren't projector cutoffs but I am not certain how you see glare from a light when not looking at the light and only looking at a wall.

    Ok update time. Ordered Hikari’s Eye of Voltron led bulb after some research. Had really good reviews and side-side comparisons. Unfortunately they don’t fit. There is a little less than 3cm of space from lip of bulb socket to the frame. These bulbs were a little OVER 3cm, so the headlight assembly wouldn’t slide back in far enough for the mounting screw holes to line up. Now I’m wondering if this is the case with most H11 led bulbs with the cooling fan. They all look about the same dimensions in the pictures.

    See my post here about H9 bulbs in regular housing - its just a brighter H11. Reflectors are made for halogen bulbs. I do like leds in fogs (also have yellow), and those hikaris are excellent in my 3 series fogs...

    Nevermind, I had to go find your set-up myself.

    Not what I was hoping for.

    Thanks anyways.

    I got the supernova v.4 led low beams and also their fog lights. The low beams do fit but barely before they would touch the support behind the headlight. There may be 1cm of space between the bulb fan and the support. The output is good IMO, and so far no one has flashed their lights at me. The picture wasn't very focused, and it was starting to snow
