More "look what came in the mail" previews.
Debating painting the trim NBP to match.

Now just to save up for some HID.


Quick thanks to CRSX for finally getting these here, but in great shape!
We need some updated pics! Might just have to take some with my car soon.... Just sayin.

Mugen teaser!
Can't wait to get them painted and installed.



Nextmod replicas, hope the fit goes well.





UPDATE: Dropped them off tonight, driving beater SI for the week. Should be ready for pick up on the weekend.
You aren't installing it yourself? :confused: :ugh:

i dont know why people talk so much shit about these projector headlight aint it the same as doing a retrofitted projector hid lens swap. it'll look almost the same as these projector headlight so dont no why people talk so much shit!!! what the different?
there is a huge differance.

1. Overall appearance. Retrofits look clean while ebay headlights look like...... ebay headlights.
2. Light Output. Ebay's have worse light output than OEM headlights.

It all comes down to quality and overall appearance. What is the point in buying headlights if they look cheap and have horrible light output? I cant think of any other use a headlight could have other than to just look different. There is a saying for that though. Just because you are unique doesn't make you cool.

I'm not an auto painter, so... No?

How about having a proper housing for brighter lights that PROJECT more light for better night time driving :confused:

The quality is there, but I agree. OME + Reto does look cleaner.
Is your car tinted all around? I can't tell.

Painting has nothing to do with installing a lip. I didn't paint my lip but i sure did install it.

And yeh, I do agree that it is better to have projectors for HIDs. I will point out that the CL (OEM HID) doesn't have projectors though. As long as you arent blinding anyone I guess I'm happy.

looks good, pretty jealous of the 05-06 that you can actually somewhat pull off the projectors.

i personally think the 05-06 wheels look sick when chromed :-D
