Not bad actually if you ask me. I agree that it looks too bug-eyed from side.

Don not like it.

Hi.

I don't like them.

Why anyone would change the stock ones, I don't get. In the daytime, nothing looks better than stock, and in the night, no one can se your pop-ups anyway when your driving + the lights are ok on them.

The best looking lights combo is stock pops, and the 99 lights in the bumper.

That's my opinion.

Have a nice day.

so... what are those and where could i find them? would look nice with some BMW style bulbs (the little halo ones)

and yes, the ones under discussion here look very similar to the Zonda but the rest of the RX-7 doesn't. personally, i find them offensive and fugly... like a fat girl in a spandex tube top.

Sorry, but I don't think they look good at all. The East Bear I can handle, but these stick out more.

that kit looks like a kit...doesnt integrate into the car at all...just a bad fashion victim there.

I didn't like them in the first place, but when you said frog look, that topped it off. I had to go back and look again and you were right!! I'm not even a fan of the East Bear lights.

Just makes me want to

They aren't to my taste, but hell, I'm just glad that people still put out products for a car that is 10+ years old. I wouldn't say they are bad on a APC/Pep Boys level, but definitely they look rather rough. The side/rear profile shot is the worst.

I think those lights could look a lot cleaner if they were painted. Unless its carbon fiber or a 99/R1 lip, I think the opaque texture sticks out a little too much on a nice paint job. I'm not sure about the buggy look of them, but I'd like to see what they look like painted and smoothed out.

At one point I liked the CWest kit too but if I ever had to swap out my Knight Sports sleepy eye HID lights, it would more than likely be for Rotary Extreme's CF HID sleel lights.

Yeah the previous owner who was an engineer for Honda picked them up when he was on business in Japan. Other FD owners who seem them think they're pretty neat.

I can't take pics right now though, because the car is still at KDR getting getting its new motor and R85 put in with some other goodies.

My body mods are fairly mild. It has the sleepy eyes, Peter Farrell front bumper, Racing Beat R1 lookalike wing, updated 93-95 turn signal/parking lights, the rims are Enkei RP01 18x8.5 front 18x10 rear, lowered on Eibachs/Tokicos, and of the course the vanity plate says FEARED.
