a very noticeable improvement huh .

but what id like to know is , does it make a difference in light throw to have a flat projector bowl because the new ones do , on the old lights the projector bowl was kinda criss-cross shaped . looked a lil different .

In the pics they look the same except for the grit blasted lenses....

ok so look at the new light , just below and to the right of the bulb is a little hose looking thingy , what are they for , cause the old lights didn't have those as you can see .

Yes the reflector shape will alter the light output/pattern some. How much I can't say. But fog's aren't really meant for anything these days other than appearance.


The little rubber hose is a moisture vent. That way if water gets inside it has a path to evaporate out ... or, it has a path to enter the lights.
