I put these lights in a few months ago and raised my bonnet what does everyone think, lights were around £80 and bonnet raisers about £2.00

i hate the hood raiser thing, makes it look like a horribly repaired wreck with horrid panel fitment, and i never did care for those types of headlights.

Like the headlights, especially the 2nd pic, but (and not to flame) I would get rid of the hood risers, I dont think it quite does your car justice.

Good looking car and I like that 2nd pic a lot, looks mean.

I dunno if the euro Foci are build like ours, but if you did the hood raiser for heat, you might consider just pulling the weatherstripping on the bottom of your windshield trim. Does a lot for heat soak and keeps the stock lock.

I can't say I like the risers... but I haven't seen that done before, so it's a new thing to me.

The headlights are sick tho!

well if i was to do long trips on the motorway it keeps the heat down and i dont think it looks too bad. ive had a mixed view loadsa people says it looks like ive had a crash and a few have said it looks ok, ive had people tell me my bonnets open and everything haha. and the bonnet raisers are just a new (longer screw) with bolts on it so it tilts the bonnet open, i have 3 bolts under it atm but i might put it down to 2.

I'm thinking of hookin up my halos like that when I do the wires again, with only one in each light on. I think it's cute/looks bad ass.


Dunno about the raised hood. I need to read up on current tuner things.

couldnt u just take the moulding off behind where the hood sits? Should give u some nice heat dissapation, would look better that the hood looking broken.

Nice fuzzy dice!!lolzz......j/k looks good, not many people out there with the risers, and I'm a fan of halos so, good show!


But the fuzzy dice need to be put back in the box in the attic, right where the 80s left them!lol
