    What bulbs are you running? It's probably just a prism effect when you look through the lens at just the right angle. It was most likely there before also, you just never noticed.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Just learn to love it, just a prism you are now noticing.

    This is correct, it was there before, against the bright chrome you just didn't notice it.
