I'm just requesting a picture of the factory beam pattern on the OEM HIDs on the GLI's or GTI's. I'm considering purchasing a set for my TDI but I just want to be sure the beam pattern is a clean one. If anyone has a pic of the beam pattern shooting up against a wall or garage door that would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

I can try to get one for you. Until then, hopefully moving this thread up will help you out.

Scratch that- the camera's as dead as a doornail. Guess I left it on after I uploaded photos last time.

I'm charging it overnight.

Thanks for the effort. I'm getting all excited to finally see what the OEM beam pattern is like on these cars. Can't wait!!!

It's largely flat-line. I had the car parked and ready for photos before I realized the camera was dead.

Re: (BRM10984)

I suspected that much as far as a cut off with the beam pattern. The thing I was wondering about was how much difraction of light occurs above the cut-off. The other thing was I wanted to see how much "color shift" is present at the top edge of the cut-off. The bosch projectors on these headlamps are pretty good. I just wanted to compare them to audi's S4/A4 Valeo projectors.

Weather-willing, I'll take the photos for you tomorrow night. The color shift is pretty impressive, IMO.

Sorry I didn't post them earlier- I locked myself out earlier so I was late getting my studying done.

Glad to help.

I tried to capture the crispness of the color at the cutoff. I hope it gives you a good idea of what you were interested in. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
