Thanks Mr Singh
Thats correct. Its the design. They outer rings are visible during the night, but during a sunny day, they are dull and hardly visible.

For both of them to be equally bright, I guess we need Joshs' mod.

Garage List
Car looks spot on with the Xenons fitted. Wait until you drive a car with "normal" headlights again and see how rubbish they are compared to the Xenons!

Thanks mate. I see what you mean. With xenons, road is so much brighter.

1- Since LCI headlights are bi-xenon and shutters get connected with the high beam wire. It works when headlights are on. However when xenons are off, high beam triggers the shutter and as there is no xenon, therefore nothing happens.

Any suggestions for the solution?
If no, then I guess I will have to install the rest of the wiring and level sensors.
Finally cracked it. I can confirm that my high beam is working as it should work in bi-xenon fitted car (even without the low beam on). I did not add OEM wiring but used a hack and coding to work it out.

All good!

If time allows, I will write a DIY and put it in DIY section.
