So this is what the OEM setup looks like. E-code European Bosch headlight/foglight combo with unobtanium glass lens. Conveniently cracked by the free rocks available on our fine roads. Cracked before my time I might add. Coupled with a lovely Hella European turn signal. While parts are slightly more available, they have to be scrounged on eBay and shipping is expensive. The headlights are a nice H4 series bulb and I have to say they are way brighter than anything I’ve ever driven before. I thought they were setup for high beams, but they are actually on low beams.
This is what I’m installing:
Maxxima LED lights that I should never have to touch again. The old lights are dual units with a marker and turn signal. The new units are combos.
Here are some photos illustrating the fun:
With the anti-tamper caps installed
Closeup with the light installed.
The old light which has clearly seen better days.
The lens which is cracked/epoxied and a hack probably.
I still need to get things wired up, but the signals are at least physically mounted. Feels like I’m making progress finally.
