Idea on projectors: (retrofit content)

As most of you seen my focus, i have retrofitted projectors. Well, for the few who know about projectors, I have the morimoto Mini H1 projectors. They produce a nice cutoff line with little color. With the E55 projectors, they produce the same cutoff. Well now Hella came out with a newly revised E55 called the EvoX-R which have a wider beam and better cutoff color.

Here are links for the Projectors:

EvoX-R

Morimoto Mini H1


Reading up on reviews and comparison, The mini has a more intense beam compared to the EvoX-R but the EvoX-R has a wider beam, colorful cutoff, and 3" clear lens.

Now going from Halogens to the MH1 setup, I've already seen a better light output in width and distance and I just LOVE that color flicker.

Now the real question, should i go for the EvoX-Rs or keep the MH1s?

Lol.. With the evo's they state they can be mounted through the Reflector mount. I still have my reflector mount inside my housing. They're 25 bucks more than my MH1s, is $25 worth it for Wider beams but a slightly duller beam? Thats pretty iffy. This is why im asking opinions..

Hell, my MH1s are able to to fully illuminate a 4 lane hwy. Thats only with 35w Morimoto capsules and ballast...


**edit**

do u have a thread about ur mach? if not what you doing to them? (assume retrofit)

MH1 = 2.5" clear lens
Evox = 3.0" clear lens = wider light.


**edit**

I also remember that since my lamps are deep, my beams is slightly cut off from the reflector blocking it. I know the E55s are slightly bigger in depth than the MH1s. That may fix my cutoff width...

Im in the same boat, except I still have her birthday (in 3 weeks) and Christmas for the little ones, then I can think about getting myself something nice.
