93 prelude Headlights?

First post, I have had my 93 prelude for two years. 90,000 original mikes and she is very clean. Has a few little things done to her but mostly stock...

Took her out for the first time in months, and to avoid getting into a head on collision i swerved to hit a construction horse.... So she is in the body shop.

It had some aftermarket headlights that were both fortunately busted in the accident... They looked ok but sucked for actual use.

I have read and searched the topics and I hear everyone talking about JDM, halo, retro, but i am uneducated when it comes to all this.. All i know is I love my car and need to get new headlights... What are the actual best type and company and where can i find them...

Re: 93 prelude Headlights?

how much you trying to spend??

Real Jdm headlights is the most expensive and more than $100 lol still looking for them my self
but u can get 1piece headlights on ebay for like $130
Also if u wanna do halos you got to open up your headlights and custom fit projectors into them or have somebody do it(which is called retro also i want to do this too lol and its hella expensive)

Re: 93 prelude Headlights?

Im not looking for the cheapest, but i dont want to get crazy either. Iy had angle eye halos on it and they SUCKED... I like HID lights, but there are so many that say HID and JDM that i dont know whats what..

Re: 93 prelude Headlights?

either get the fake ebay "jdm" black housing ones for about 150 or the real jdm black or chrome housing ones for 200 - 300 dollars estimate .. the fake projector ones aint very good looking

also the real jdm ones have 3 horizontal lines across the front

Re: 93 prelude Headlights?

The knock off one pieces are good. I have had 2 sets on 2 different cars and know people that have had them for years and had no issues with them.

you can find the actually jdm one piece lights on ebay, and yes you can put some hid's in them. i believe the low beam bulb size for the jdm lights are 9005.

check out ddmtuning.com for the hid's.
i bought a set of 55watt 10k(white) and they are really nice. and only $47 shipped to my door.

Re: 93 prelude Headlights?

^^^ yeah i thought 6K are the white ones???

but anyway, i have the ebay 1piece lights and they look very good and last (4 years so far)

but after a quick look on ebay i found that you can get the real ones for about 150 more.

so if your looking to save some bucks and get the look, go with ebay.

USDM = 9005/9006
JDM = H1/H4

but many, if not all, the replicas use the stock 9005/9006 setup, so thats one less investment/headache...
