Re: Front lip or halo type headlights?

for halo you mean projectors? http://img.alibaba.com/photo/1221335...Civic_2006.jpg

I'd probably go with lip if you live somehwere that doesn't get snow (or you can park it for the winter) and you are careful around speed bumps and curbs :P

Re: Front lip or halo type headlights?

k. i'll go for the lip. and prolly just get the oem headlights since mine got f'd up lol.
what lip should i go for? mines white so gettin a blue or black from h&a would suck. since id have to sand it and repaint. i rather get a black one thats ready to paint right?
i see alot on ebay. im currently tryna find a oem one. but if i cant i see alot of abs plastic and some bendable poly urethane shyt//./? does it matter which i get? thanks guys

Re: Front lip or halo type headlights?

from what I've heard abs plastic sucks

people have hit cones while autoxing and had the lip practically explode, you'd want oem if you can find it I would think

also iirc the oem is polyeurethane

Re: Front lip or halo type headlights?

you can always go with Depo brand OEM style headlights. They are a fraction of the cost and a lot of members have had good luck with them. they come in both silver and black housings.

For the lip, try to stay with OEM honda parts, the fitament of aftermarket plastics are not so desirable

I highly suggest not getting an ebay lip. They are jenky. They come with absurd brackets to attach to the car. I suggest OEM for the best, most reliable and easiest fitment. I've also seen the Wings West lip and it seems alright. But I've bought ebay and immediately sold it since it was a piece of crap.

If you want an OEM lip H and A is your only option, because ALL OTHER colors are gone. Anything used on ebay will have to be painted too (USDM or JDM Type S).

Re: Front lip or halo type headlights?

The Halos are not ricey but I do know the circle tail lights are 100% ricey.. The jdm headlights are great though. I own some Halo lights and get nothing but great complements about them..
