Thanks, Vulcan50. Why did you cut off the tab? is there a benefit? I have 6 different E90 projectors (3 left and 3 right). I have another pair that went for a swim during a hurricane. I took off the cutoff shield from one of the bad ones and experimented. I trimmed off the extra metal on it and re-installed onto one of the good projectors. The cutoff was much more blury.

Can you explain why it is trimmed and perhaps what did i screw up in my trial? thanks
P.S. If you have a picture of what you mean by trimmed tab, this would be wonderful. I'm talking about the shield that goes across the projector beam and is painted black (sort of sheet metal material).
