    ah ok. I know the projectors give the cutoffs - I was just wondering if it also affected the spread of light... Cause with my current stock housing (no projector) i can kinda tell its blotchy, and I didnt wanna do a projector retrofit if it was still gonna be blotchy ya know?

    and its also been hard to tell because we're in the middle of a nor'easter! I'm in southeastern VA and we've got severe flooding! so just to let everyone know - the ballasts and wiring seem to be extremely waterpoof ;P I was driving down a road then had to put it in reverse 'cause the water level was almost to the bottom of my door!

    I think this has been mentioned before somewhere but does anyone else have a problem with the lights interfering with the radio? I can't get my favorite stations with the lights on. Is there a cure for this? The lights are fantastic but if I have to sacrifice the radio...............I dunno.

    I have only heard of one person getting static and that is on AM. What you need to do is check where the ballasts are mounted. Make sure they aren't near the radio antena.

    I get static on am and fm but it seems only when I am on the fringe of the reception area. The ballasts are mounted beside the headlights. Anyway, I'm living with the issue by switching to a different station when it happens. otherwise, I think the lights are incredible. Ashamed to turn my fogs on now. Thanks for everything.
