who has "oem style" headlights?

the ones that look oem but arent (like depo brand), does anyone have pics of the output? like pics against a wall, on the ground, etc. thanks! i want to get the clear ones from ebay for $100 shipped but i dont want the light output to suck, which it does for other car brands.

They're halogens, you know the output is going to suck. Just hurry up and finish your retro.

Re: who has "oem style" headlights?

yeah I hear you man. Grad school and work is taking up all my time too... not enough hours in a day anymore. I had to send my headlights to customlightz and have them finish up my TFX retro.

Congrats! Finally graduating is a great feeling.

Re: who has "oem style" headlights?

School work (taking classes for CFA exam) after 10-12 hours of day job sucks even more than school by itself.

You guys got me curious. What are you studying?

I bought the Civic back in 03 thinking I might quit work to go back to school for MBA fulltime. But now, I'm considering staying on the job and working on MBA part time to take advantage of my company's reimbursement program. (which would also open up the option of giving in to my temptation for a new G35/37 coupe.)

You're right, work sucks as much as school. If your job pays for it stay with that company. You'll have some long days, but it will be worth it. Look at it this way, it's free money for school. I'm studying to get my M.S. in chemical engineering and the energy company I work for doesn't pay for anything.

Re: who has "oem style" headlights?

I noticed that the reflector design on my OEM sedan and on OEM style coupe headlights are different.

The OEM sedans have more ridges.
Don't know about difference on output / cut off since I never got a chance to install them.

Re: who has "oem style" headlights?

they have a layer of dust on the chrome inside, not sure how, the lens has dirt on the back in swirls and other patterns, lens is all scratched and pitted, it sucks esp at night. i mean its okay for now, but they look really ugly in the sun. i got em used from ebay and we all know how much those suck. if i could find a new pair of oem lights for cheap, i think i would just throw them on with the amber pieces still inside just to fix the problem.
