Headlight Questions

Ninja again, as opposed to my muffler, i also want to pop some new eyes in my old girl.

Im looking at projector headlights
(Link: http://www.andysautosport.com/honda/...lights/spec_d/)

And i need to know these things:

-does it make your vision at night worse/better?
-do i need to rewire my headlight mounts to fit more bulbs?
-does black or chromed look better on an Arcadia Green Pearl accord in your opinion?
-What custom headlights do you use and how do they look/perform?

Thanks!

"Pop some new eyes in my old girl"...? Talk like a normal person.


Anyone that has those headlights will tell you that they're absolutely horrible. The light production on them is far worse than even the factory headlights. A way to improve this would be an HID setup but the projectors that are installed in these headlights are for your standard halogen bulbs and not HIDs. They're cheaply made and pose the risk to be a safety hazard to yourself and others.

If you want a nice headlight setup then I suggest doing a projector retrofit in either your stock headlights or buying a set of JDM/EDM 1 or 2-piece headlights and doing a retrofit in those. The right retrofit, combined with an HID setup in a useable temperature range will be the best possible combinatiopn for these cars in terms of looks and light output.

i do speak like a normal person, but my car is my baby as with many of the other guys around here.

And thanks for the headlight help, i just want a custom look with good visability.

OP: take a gander over here:

Doing a proper projector retrofit is the best way to go.

im not making generic posts am i?

Im just very cautious about what to put in my car. If never tuned a CB7 before, so i think its best to consult the public and use expirience to avoid mistakes.

Ex. the projector headlights that are apparently crap.

What he's saying is all this post along with your muffler thread have been asked and answered countless times. If you had searched about the lights you would've found this:

and this

and this

just as a start. You could find plenty of threads talking about the WS2 exhaust as well. But I think you're getting the idea. If I got the little amount of knowledge I've gained so far with the noob I was I know you can do it as well. Nobodys being dicks you just gotta put your funderwear on and do your part as well.
