which have the better light quality for seeing the road the s13 bricks or the triple projectors. im thinking of going sil80 just because of how much of a pain in the ass my flip ups are so i was wondering for practical reasons which ones light the road better.

Easy answer... bricks for looks, and if you wanna see, retrofit projectors into them so they are hidden.

Bricks suck. Everyone pretty much tells you that online, it's the truth. None of the "JDM" lights will work very well as all of the len's and light beam patterns are designed for the opposite driving lane then the US so it will shine goofy on US streets. you want good light output build some sort of just HID/Projector setup (like a supermade/eastbear/etc) or do a HELLA H4 / Cibie headlight conversion on the flip ups. those headlights run about $120-$180.

You're right.

The real solution is stock lights with yellow tint over them so everyone knows you're in the GT class. cheers

It's not that hard, let me know. Theretrofitsource.com is a good place to start looking, and to get ideas of what will fit.

Not you.

The overall "I'll do whatever someone will do for me" theme of this thread, yes.

i have dual projectors. they do have the beam lines facing the wrong way but other than that they work great. i adjusted them up slightly and i think they are on par with any new japanese car. getting hid bulbs for them isn't hard. they just run fog lamp bulbs. i did put higher wattage bulbs in mine though.

Filthy tits are the answer. Just flop a pair on the front of the car and that's all you need. The filthier the better.
