I am also using Projector Headlights on my Corolla. I do face a similar problem but the cut off is on left side. Could you tell me how you guys overcome this problem?

that is the correct way. But to have it my way you will have to open the light. Then change a plate direction below the lens to achieve what you want.

Thanks...You mean the cut-off should be on the left side. But is it possible to completely remove the cut-off, I have seen many OEM fitted lights come without any cut off.

Also two of the CFL rings have failed, is there any way to replace them? How do I open the light? Someone told me that the headlight need to be baked to remove the sealant? Any suggestion in this regard would be of much help.

The Halo rings are not CFL. They are lit by LED bulbs. For replacing the bulbs you do not have to open the headlight assembly.

They can be CFL also. Some lights have them. I dont know much about the CFL. But in my light there is LED which can be replaced very easily.

Thanks LBM and Vikram. I checked my Car's headlights, the halo's indeed have LEDs and they are not CFL as I mentioned in my previous post. But unfortunately they don't seem to be accessible from outside, I may have rip open the light assembly to replace the LEDs. Any suggestions on how open the light? LBM did you bake your lights to open them?

You do not need to rip open the headlight for changing the LED's. The bulbs should be accessible from outside.

@LBM - Hmmm. Interesting. Maybe next project.

Sorry to add the last time. The Halo rings LED can be acesses from the below of the head light assembly. No need to open the light.

For opening the light I used a hot air gun for the same.

Guys, can we have interior lighting pics, in this thread, of all the setups mentioned in the poll? That'll go a long way in adding another dimension to the whole thing. The bulb color temperature will need to be mentioned as well. I'll be clicking tonite and putting up tomorrow.
