I have some on my 240Z.

They don't serve any useful purpose and they cause issues with already poor lighting.

I'd save your money for more important things.

It looks like they are a casing that goes around the entire units as opposed to just a screwed on lens.

Says no drilling required.
Anyone had any experience with these particular ones??
I think only the proper ones look right.

I'd wait on bits like this till you get the body on the mend.

Hmmmm,,,,

Are they actual casings like I though they would be, or are they just lense inserts?

I already bought some crystal projector 7" lamps to improve lighting at the front end.

Not cheapy ones, propereu and gb approved, british made.

Mate - they're the same as from MJP and we all have had experience either wearing them or seeing them worn - you can GLUE the fixing brackets but I know of one that blew off and not screwed in !

I agree with Rob unless you're going for a specific look and are prepared to assume the consequences.

Instead of asking for photos of this and that - trust to your internet search engine :

'All in' means engine head to rear.......stuff the USA cars, you (and your Z) are European - fit a bit of class.

Just trying to get to know you but it appears it's all up to own persoanl interpretation which is difficult not having met you.

But if you want to talk exhausts...I'm listening.

How is your OEM manifold ?

Not sure if oem or not.

It is a 6-1 branch manifold going into a 3" straight through pipe all the way to the backbox.....

Do not think this could be standard really.

Sippose you will tell me for sure.

We all try to give good advice as none of us want to see things go wrong. Most of us have been on this forum for many many years and seen lots of newcomers buy project cars that never get finished or head in the wrong direction. We try to stop people making choices that we feel they will regret in the future as we've seen it all before. We are not telling you how to build your car but only trying to help you based on our experience.

S30's are great cars and one of the main reasons for this is their looks. Once you start messing with the look then IMO you loose a lot of the appeal of the cars.

Dont take things personal as we mean good.

I don't try to stop anyone....cars ARE personal - just do it with ones' eyes wide open and a tadge of good taste doesn't hurt.
