RE: xenon projector beam headlights

The sharp cutoff is the same on my new Euro headlights on the 200qw. I
was out at night in it this weekend for the first time and kept on
feeling like I was blinding oncoming traffic, but only until I got a
good look at the cutoff. It angles up sharply on the inside to
illuminate signs and what-not a looooong way down the road and then is
just cut off right above the hood (just below the windshield/rear
windows on oncoming/same direction vehicles. Amazing difference from the
OE candle sticks.
