Main beam illuminates through the biggest lens, projecting light everywhere else:
I set the headlight alignment quite conservatively at first, to ensure I'm not an annoyance or hazard to other road users. The cut-off of the light pattern at the top is quite pronounced:
Main beam is a bit different:
My neighbour spotted me heading out for testing:
Out on the test road, the conservative alignment and beam cut-off is very easy to recognise. Only drivers of Caterhams and Morgan 3-wheelers are likely to be disturbed. I'll gradually adjust the beam upwards to illuminate more of the road without causing offence:
And if you were wondering how tall the hedges are, please refer to this image of main beam:
The road surface here climbs up and then descends slightly, so it's a little misleading. The actual length of coverage in main beam is outstanding. No need for a WRC light pod for the speeds I'll be driving at.
Before and after, on main beam:
So, in summary, a massive improvement for a small investment, and all reversible if the LED units decide to fail or MOT requirements change again. I'm happy with that.
Well, that was an UPDATE !!
Great choice of direction with the lights.
And as mentioned, cyborg-like sounds right.
And the price of those units to me seem very good, amazing how much bang you can get for your buck.
