The good part is that most people on the forum have appreciated the car for the way it is done. A big thank you to ALL of you guys !!!!

Cheers

Not quite sure I understand what you are saying.......the colour of the car was Black before it was changed it to yellow....wonder if that answers your question

Cheers

A new thought has entered my mind. Would appreciate comments / points of view.

The angel eyes headlights are not providing an even spead of light on the road. I have an issue with that...night driving becomes a problem. There are 2 options I have.

01. Go back to stock lights (which illuminate perfectly)
02. Go for INVEX haedlamps which have 2 beams each side, provide good illumination on high & low beam.

Option 02 would also entail changing the stock bonnet, to a custom made one (in fiberglass) in order to accomodate the INVEX headlamps, that would mean an additional expense of about ????? This bonnet would also have a very interesting scoop.

What's your take on this guys ? Any ideas

Thanks in advance

Try adjusting the focus on the HIDs if you already haven't done so.

If you have, then your options would depend upon your budget if any. If not, then the Invex headlamps sould like a better idea, though I personally prefer the design on the stock Lancer 1.5.

@elf: i think these are regular halogens, not HID.

@ricky: as elf said, try tweaking the focus on the lights (i think there are knobs at the back for this). if that doesn't help, then u can switch to more powerful bulbs (i think there is a thread dedicated to this).
even i prefer the old Lancer headlight setup... somehow the new one isn't very aesthetic.
but do let us know what you did. i was thinking of fitting the angel eye units - having second thoughts now!

Thanks for your responses

@elf The lights have halogens as of now, the issue is not the quantity of light - it is the quality of light & more importantly the focus, i may like to try the focussing one more time & then take a final call. Thanks

@razor you are right they are not HID's - the knobs at the back of the light have been tweaked with no great results, a more powerful bulb may or may not work in the light will have to check on that one, the only issue with these lights is the focus & light quality (both of which are extrememly important for safe driving). Thanks for your suggestions

Invex headlamps can be had for 8k a pair.
Get the bonnet from the gujri - will cost about 3k.
Or get the regular bonnet done by a tinker. Very much possible and will probably cost you 5k in tinkering charges.

Hey Ricky,
Have a look at the Skyline on the link below. It has the shade of your lancer. Just a thought, how about decals the same blue shade used on the Skyline.

Rikky, nice wheels, looks like a lot of work has gone in. And yes, it is quite subtle.

@Harmon

Thanks for the input......though it looks very sporty & all - I think it may be a little loud for me personally.

Cheers
