Blue tinge to lights


Recommended Posts

I've not got xenons, but at night when my cars lights illuminate roadsigns there is a definite blue tinge to the edges of the lit up bit. I've never had this with previous cars so it is definitely these lights that are different.

I thought only xenons did this blue tinge thing? confused.gif

Thats it. The Dipped beam on the RHS has the elipsoid glass, which is effectively a magnifying glass.

when you pass light throught it it has similar effect as a prism, and you get the blue/ rainbow tinge on the edges.

Oncoming traffic also get to see them twinkle as you ride over the bumps and the light moves.
