Yes, you can remove the amber piece. The only problem is, that you wont have a reflector in the front anymore. There is only a shiny metal surface behind the amber reflector. I removed my amber ones and hand made a pair of the clear reflectors.

Yep, I did them myself. As far as Lumes go, You have a more pure/bright light with the 04+ LS430 projectors. Those have to be the best HID projector made so far.

Those headlamps look pretty sick... plus I read that you did them yourself... mad props to you and your efforts. I don't think I've noticed that until now. They remind me of a six shooter pistol, kind of aggressive and ready to shoot.
