    There’s nothing wrong with the head lamps on a 500.

    I don't find the Nero trimmed headlights on my '18 500 Abarth to be as good as the ones on my previous '13 500 Sport- brightness mostly. Whether the cause is the smoked lenses, the bulbs the factory used or old age (mine) or some combination of the three, I can't really say. Got some Nokya Arctic White bulbs on order- will report back.

    Yeah... the smoke tint would be the culprit, I'd think. The light is fine on mine, but the shutters clip the range of the lights. Night driving would be less hazardous if everyone's lights prevented shining in people's eyes.

    The smoked head lamps would not affect the project portion of the head light. The smoke area doesn’t add to the light output.

    Sometimes I think it's intentional. Last year I was stopped on a state highway waiting to make a left hand turn on to a county road.. The vehicle (a pickup) coming the other way ended up up making a left hand turn from his direction. I was completely blinded, despite turning my head and even closing my eyes for a second or two. Can't ever recall seeing headlights that bright on a street vehicle .... doubt they were street legal.

    It does if you put window tint over the headlights. <g>

    Yeah, I've had that problem with a lot of the PUs in our area... extra bright lights aimed too high. It doesn't help that these same trucks are jacked up so their bumper is about windshield level on most cars.

    Some of the new Jeep Wranglers are the worst, they blind me completely when I'm in a car.

    The LED head lamps are extremely bright. Can be blindly. The older Lexus, and Infinty’s has HID head lamps, that were obnoxiously bright. If someone has bright lights behind you. Just dim the mirror.

    These are the optional smoked headlamp lens. Has no effect on the light output.

    LOL .... it's all Toluca aka factory installed. The window tint IS a lot darker than I had on the Sport.




    The headlights on the Sport were pretty good and I'm hoping the new bulbs (backordered for the moment) will at least get me back to that level. I am curious how the smoked lenses (Nero trimmed) actually affect light output.
