Going to be a while till I get these installed but ordered optically clear lenses for the factory projectors. When properly focused, they create a sharper cutoff with more light output. Had the V logo etched as I will be doing some custom demon eyes as well. Will post up an install thread when I get the time to do the full install.

Logos do not affect light output and do not project the logo. Purchased from TRS. I'd have to check how much it was total.

Any updates? I used the black series lens on my last V2. They were slightly smaller in diameter and thinker at the base which made it hard to attach without breaking /chipping the edge of the lens.

I'm in the middle of a full build and haven't got to the headlights yet.

Way to pull this one up from the past! I pulled my car apart, and then decided to go back to school for my MBA. So 4 years with no engine in the car.

Finally back at it. Dealing with a couple issues on my heads right now, and was looking to pull the headlights apart this weekend.

So no, 4 years later and not done!

lmao!! Well keep us posted what you find out. I saw a thread on HIDplanet of the clear lenses on the CTS projector and it didn't look like it really improved output whatsoever. It sharpened up the cutoff, but output looked worse to me. See thread below:

The testing on TRS showed noticeably sharper cutoff and it looked like a hotter hot spot but maybe a bit less intensity than stock when you get away from the hot spot. I'm putting much better bulbs in the car with higher lumen output, so that should compensate. In the end I'll be happy if it is a sharper cutoff and has the v logo.

I hear that. I had mine taken apart too just to clean debris and condensation from them before sealing them better. Just put Osram Night Breaker Lasers in them so hopefully a needed improvement but we'll see
