      Yeah, it certainly blurs out the cutoff. Some headlights are worse, where you pretty much just get a bright white flood light, negating the whole reason of retrofitting a projector.

      The fluted lens on the Ecodes will scatter the light from the projector all over the place, So you won't have a cutoff-line. You need to have the clear lens on the front with projectors.

      It has aged well! Looks great.

      You'll hate selling it. Because you and all of us know if you sell it to anyone, the engine and trans will end up in some punk's MK3 that had a 2.0 auto.

      I've used these people in the past and they are just awesome. Mostly I use them for building A/C kits for cars and engine swaps, but they sell compressors and parts by the P/N.
