What’s the difference between projector and reflector headlights?

Reflector headlights can have darker spots. HID bulbs are too bright when used in reflector headlights, where the light they emit can blind other drivers.

Can you touch LED headlights?

Since LEDs produce light through electroluminescence rather than heat, it is fine to touch them with bare hands. That being said, it’s best not to handle them any more than absolutely need to.
