    Need some headlight input...

    Ok I have a red 2001 z28 and i want some better headlights and don't really know what's out there... the stock ones are just not cutting it, also i would really like to know how to do the 4 headlight all at once (or whatever its nicknamed) mod. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if you are wanting halo headlights, or anything else along those lines, sorry im not help, i think they look terrible and ugly...

    I just did too. However, I have an entirely different issue going on right now. With the storm that went through here, my drivers side headlight has condensation in it and about 1/4" of water in the bottom

    Anyone know where to just get new weather stripping for these without buying a whole new unit?

    I just did this mod however; I guess I misunderstood that it would ONLY allow the fogs to stay on not the 4 headlights as well. Anyone know of the 4 headlight mod without any wire cutting? Thanks.

    They have weatherstripping on them? Isn't there just a gasket between the socket and headlight assembly?

    You can get Ultra Slim HID kits on Ebay. They are technically illegal though.

    I bought those and am really not all that impressed. As a matter of fact, I think my stock bulbs were brighter

    I'm talking about around the outside of the headlight. Rain is getting in from there. Not from under the hood at the socket

    then something else has to be an issue. mine work fine in my 3 vehicles, and are a hands down improvement over the halogen bulbs they replaced...

    all 3 cars have the 5900k xenon bulbs in there and there is a drastic difference...

    I don't know. Maybe just my old eyes But, the only difference I found is that they are more blue

    I went ahead and compared the two and as far as brightness and distance... I didn't notice any huge difference at all

    But, they were inexpensive and if nothing else... I've got an extra set of bulbs
