    hello guys , i was wondering if somebody made conversion to LED h4 bulb and removed the bulb shield or not, i cannot understand about the specific little part that is only to euro/usa headlight and not in japanese headlights , that covers the oem halogen lamp, but in led does this need to be removed or not ? many ppl claim that this reflect light and it is supposed to be on this , but some others claim that its only to shield the lamp no to blind the incoming traffic , in jdm headlights this does not exist cz the OEM lamps has protection for this glare while the headlights that got this bulb shiled the OEM lamps are completed naked and they are need , so my question is that now that i got LED do i need to remove or it will blow away all the light and i ll have worse lighting on the road ?

    I was on the same boat with you last year. in the end I remove it and use led h4. I think now is the light is better and NEVER blind anyone.
    it also looks very cool (the headlight)

    can i ask what kind of led u got if u got any picture and if u got any night picture in dark road ? today i checked also that the inside of this shield is painted Silver mat , not chrome shiny, so i dont think that this reflects probably absorbing and in the end only cover the normal halogen bulb so maybe the led doesnt need this, are you from cyprus by the way?
