      I'm surprised that nobody brought up the Woodlite headlamps yet. They were standard equipment on the Ruxton and DuPonts at the time, but I also learned that they came standard on the 1928 Pickwick NiteCoach!





      ...weird.

      Alright but another favorite German Mk1 grille would have to be a Scirocco Mk1 with the quad headlights. I lusted after that conversion since I owned my first Rabbit..

      That's not a conversion. It's stock.

      I don't know if you could've chosen a more lackluster, average looking headlight.

      This is a tough one; I've never been wow'd by a headlight.

      My favorite headlight as far as driving is hands down the R53 mini with reflector housing xenons you could see everything. It was glorious


      As far as I think it's hard to deny the Jag E Type Series has one of the best looking light designs, but as any series 1 owner will tell you output was dreadful. The DB4 Zagato Barcetta and Ferrari 250 series are just as pretty(I prefer non GTOs, sue me)




      When installed properly and painted correctly C3 L88 FIA/Lemans lights look rad

      This is exactly my problem as well, I think.

      Were the Lamborghini and Nissan headlights posted above the same part number? They look identical.

      Yes.

      Anyway, I know this is a lame answer, since it's a car I own, but I think the MkVII xenons with LED DRL's look pretty good.

      Always allow popups. Goddamn, I miss my Integras.



      I have it bad for 6054 popups. I swear the main reason I consented to the MR2 is the 6054 popups.

      Any popup is best.

      I'm aware of that. I wanted to run that grille and lights on a Westy Rabbit.
