Default Headlight projector lens diameter size

Both my headlights low beam light output deteriorating badly. Even with H11 HID the lights thrown on the road are dim. I found out the reflector bowls chrome has burnt off.

My plan is to modify aftermarket projector set. They have different lens sizes i.e. 2.5” and 3”. Wondering anyone know which one will fit ?

Thanks.

Great. Thanks for sharing. So the 2.5" lens is exact fit to the original shroud diameter?

After changing the light output improve a lot? Use H7/D2H bulb?

We might be giving G1 advice to a G2 guy here. I'm not sure.

Right, but I don't think Minor4326 has a G2.
