The Bosch E46 is a replica of the classic xenon projector by Bosch. This model was launched in the late nineties and is used in new cars to this very day.
The light output of the projector decreases when being used for many years, due to the reflecting layer becoming dull or even disappearing through burning.
This results in a significantly lower light output, which may cause your car to fail the MOT test.
Safe driving requires good sight, so be sure to replace your old projectors in time by the Bosch E46 projector. This xenon projector has a highly concentrated, slightly smaller light beam, which provides a higher light output. Because of these properties this projector provides good visibility, even at great distance.
The Bosch E46 is suitable for Plug & Play on various models, see table.
Contrary to the OEM AL Bosch E46 projector the reflector bowl of the Aharon E46-R projector has a matte finish.
The reflector bowl of the Aharon E46-R projector has a Lambertian reflectance design. This creates a more even spread of light and a higher light output compared to a mirror finish.
