    headlight light pattern question/hid kit

    I just installed a 6000K hid kit for my camaro. I LOVE IT! but I have noticed that the right one seemed to be brighter than the left. once in the garage and about 15 feet away, you can tell that the right one had a bit more rounded beam than the left. if i take and press down on the back of the left bulb, the lights focus would expand and contract, much like you can do with a mag light flashlight.

    I'm thinking that the metal round thing that incases the bulb on the low beams is the reason for this. but I was curious on what in the heck that thing is for. I mean if chevy put it there, it must keep something bad from happening, or has someone removed it to get better light yet? any input on this would help thanks.

    They are diffusers. They help to focus the light straight ahead. Without it the light will scatter in every direction.

    thanks for the help. seems that the diffuses are causing 2 different light patterns. glad I didn't pull them out like I wanted to . I'm guessing that pulling them out would fix the problem, but cause everyone to get angry with me that I pass and blind guess the only fix would be to get the projection headlights off ebay?
