to be honest i'm really not sure why its like that... i know ive seen posts of people with older models taking apart their projectors and filing it down so its straight, but i dont know why it was made like that
its quite pronounced at the cutoff (once again probably because i havent had projector lights before), but thanks for the explanation! i was just worried it was because of my own installation
i think i'll pass on opening up my headlights for now.
but for future reference, how hard is that anyways? and, is that black sticky stuff just simply a moisture sealer? (and not some epoxy i'd have to bake to remove)
