Why dont you go the GTS clear lens cover option? they look sweet from what ive seen and easier than civic lights.

Has anyone ever measured 1999 or later Miata headlights? They look like they are about the right shape.......???????

Post Re: headlights
the miata lights have already been done....

i have been looking at them recently as i bought some civic lights but i'm not sure on them, if i do fit them i will be customising the body not the lights> just to be a little bit different.

I am starting to get ready for the year to make these but hmm there apears to be "bump" or a downfall. They would work well with the stock bumper because thats what keeps them there on tight..but hmm I just barely tought of this and after looking at alot of mx3 with aftermarket bumpers...ee the bottom part where the headlight sits may be a bit different..

http://www.geocities.com/c00l.geo/sidemxprojector.JPG

can anyone see what I mean?? they are on so tight that the aftermarket kits would have to be the same..altough...it may work..just that I dont have an aftermarket bumper.

does this mean that the huge majority of newer cars that have clear lenses (w/o the 'ridges') are all using projectors?

No not the majority, my Protege has clear lense using H4 bulbs - much better lighting than the MX.

Yah, My Protege also had reflectors with clear outer lenses. And with good H4's in there, they are awesome.

Why doesn't any company make lights for us? Because plastic injection molding is expensive.

so what sam baker said wasn't true then? you are allowed to use clear lenses w/ reflectors?

If someone made aftermarket headlights or projectors for our car, I would buy them in a second, no questions asked. Forget shopping around for a better price, forget any wait time they might have, whatever...if they were made, I would buy them.

So just in case someone out there is reading this, that is in a position to make these...rest assured that 75% of MX-3 owners, if not more, would buy them in a heartbeat.
