Hey! since you are installing the large lamps in front, i don't think there will be too much of a problem with headlight quality. I'd suggest u to go for some angel eyes/projectors, and if at any time u feel the light is not enough, Switch on the hellas! lol!

@jayd-ya i could do that.. but still i heard the after market lights are not worth the money ...

@akshay1234- ok but what if 1 led goes out... then won't it be a hard time finding the bulb and replacing ... i really don't know i'm asking..


Just got a call from one of my friend he told projection lights with indicator are available for the lancer .. i'm going to check it out tomorrow will post pic of it..


and for the alloy will the lenso shu look better ....

Did you get to see it? Would be great if you got some pics. And how much would they cost?

Take a good hard look & ensure they are "PROJECTOR LAMPS" & not just 2 regular reflectors. Take a look in my Gallery, the ones on my car were NOT projectors but plain & simple twin beam lights.

If you are really finding "projectors" - I would like to see pictures & know the price. Thanks

Ricky is right, i doubt its the same one. Projector lights were never made for the lancer, theyre all circular beams with angel rings.

I guess you can install `spacers` which make the rims come out of the arches ,saw a wide body lancer getting fixed with such spacers at Autopsyche`s workshop....PM him for more details.
