The output did improve marginally; unfortunately, I didn't take any pics for the "before" scenario so there won't be much to prove it. What I can say is that the width of the beam is better and the and the light does travel further down the road then it did before. It's no LS460 retrofit, but it did improve it some.
As far as the color flicker mod, I didn't notice any difference in output from no space vs. spaced. The curvature of the cutoff shield is what creates the prism affect (blue/purple color), in connection with the distance the projector is from the shield / source of the light. Not saying your wrong and I'm certainly not an expert. I messed around with various spacing and spacers for a few days before I slapped it all back together.
I considered retrofitting an entirely different projector/bowl; but didn't want to have to cut into the headlight itself to compensate for the side-mounting issue. Seeing as re-sealing the headlight from moisture was the issue that prompted me to do this in the first place, I didn't want to be in that position again.
About the only thing I could think of was to go LED with a RX350 projector, but couldn't find the OEM Osram diodes as an individual component for sale.
At the end of the day, not saying anyone should go and do this; but I'm happy with the outcome.
