I also like those headlights, my only concern is that they might be too much chrome? I would also loved if the had a single or dual led turning signal row(s) that did not curved up upward into the side of the fog light. I might buy the black version of this headlight, probably more sporty and updated look?

Sadly they don't have the black version, I wish they make one and yeah I also agree
with you that it might be too much chrome but i think it looks nice while the car is
running with those LED on may be?

VERY NICE! DANG, they're just too expensive considering the "brand". Hows the build?

I forgot where, but I believe it was on one of the 996 forums said the quality is not that great. Also, the headlight projectors are using halogen bulbs(which you can install an HID kit, but the cut off line and quality is not good).

Remove amber film on headlights
anyways, here is the only pic of the black one. I think both would look nice. wonder if any members have bought these headlights and can post more pics.

Also interested in the black housing ones.


Please post here if you are interested in a bulk buy. I'll step up and try to figure a good pricing for us.

Black ones also.
Also i would think they would be perfect with just a straight row of LEDs.
My amber ones are getting yellow.

Anyone else try these that's not currently sleeping with Jeff?

I wouldn't mind an unbiased opinion. That is one well done modified Boxster though, and from those pic the headlights look sharp.

I wonder, do the LEDs stay on as DRL? Any way to turn them off and use for just turn signals Do the fog lights work (haven't seen any photos of them on)?

Wonder what those black one would look like on a black 986...the chrome ones would be too much contrast.

I'd be interested in the black ones too for my black box. Can't seem to find any pictures.
Anyone have a link to the black housing?
