    1. its not really an upgrade. they are the same as the stock ones minus the little "nipples" on them. they have an extra bulb input for parking lights.

    2. they sell for around a hundred dollars brand new.

    3. you can't really tell if they're "jdm" unless you really look down at them and exaime them carefully.

    If you want the "jdm" look of those headlights just shave off the "nipples" on your stock headlights. Bottom line, they're not worth it IMO.

    JDM headlights also use a fucked up bulb (H4H i think) that is not for sale anywhere in the US and the few places that do carry them charge you out the ass for them


    fuck JDM headlights
    if you MUST change your headlights get the EDM ones
    they look just like the JDM ones but they use the same H$ bulb that your USDM ones do

    EDM > JDM

    if you want cool and JDM get these, they are expensive as all nuts, but they look soo good.

    A lot of people hate on those amber corners but IMO I think they look good on any color of 92-95 civics.

    the real ones look soo much better than the fakes.

    throw a pair of Denji Projectors at them and you have yourself a tizzight ride

    thanks for polluting this thread with one of the most pointless posts ever. this was a thread about HEADlights, not corners.

    1) No they aren't
    2) the stock ones look better, on some color cars.


    JDM headlights are plastic, have "city" lights, and no nipples. $75 isn't too bad, they are usually around $90. As E said, the EDM ones have all the same features, but are glass. The thing about the EDM ones are they are motorized so you can adjust them from the cabin, and they are pretty expensive, around $180 a set, and you won't be able to run the motorized part without some hefty wiring, since I am pretty sure it was only a feature of the European ones.

    On white it goes either way. I have ambers now, but had stock JDM's (EDMs same thing), and liked 'em both but the stocks are just nice and clean


    stock=visions
