K2 Headlights in!



Just getting on the ramps was a struggle.


But I made it!



Bumper off! (Just followed video on their website.)


Almost done


And here's some more finished pics for you. I'll try to take some this evening when it's a little darker. But I love them so far! I just gotta re-buy some eyelids, totally didn't crack my old ones trying to get them off. Yeah totally didn't...

I wanna say @monstermazda has one on instagram but I could be wrong. I don't have any pics atm but I'll do a quick writeup and take some later if I have the time.

I had to lower mine and widen the beams but after the adjustments they seem to be on relatively similar in width and distance to most other new car's lights.

They do have lots of (not sure about the correct term for this) shadows in the lights compared to most new cars but compared to other aftermarket headlights and older cars it doesn't seem to be as bad.

The brights system doesn't seem to work as well as stock but there is a noticeable difference when I turn them on.

From what I saw they seem to provide above average visibility for aftermarket lights but not as much as stock. They're definitely not as dim/bad as many aftermarket and older car's lights. For city driving at night (with city lights on) they are more than adequate.

Just ordered some ISC N1 Adjustable coilovers, a corksport power series cat back (and hangers), and will swing by street unit to pick up some spacers for my rear wheels and some rear control arms! Also gonna get my fenders rolled sometime before those arrive.

Should be a fun couple of months!
