Someone on the MX5Nutz stand at JAE had them, sadly I think I've only got the one pic, I don't know who it was, and you can't even see them very well :(


not sure that they're home made either, sorry.

Nice. I've always liked my round-eye factory stuff, but I gotta say, that looks pretty slick.

I might have to convert to wide-screen here pretty soon. :) Wonder if NSX units would be a reasonable swap, they've got the low-profile light like that and the split lights like that.

I would really be interested in retro fitting somesquare cut headlights. I like the stockers, but the square look more aggressive imo

alright i can't take a proper picture because i only have my camera phone and it doesn't do so well with the light bulb lights. but here is 2 pics of my hid's and 1 old pic. of just 1 side. i'll see if i can get a better pic tomorrow morning. And i used the STOCK hardware to mount the headlights but i had to weld 2 things on.

here's the link to some other pics of the process without the headlight lid on.

oh i forgot to add i in the miata.net pictures, the linkage looks nothing like that anymore, i invested in some spherical ball bearings to make it more adjustable and easier on the motor.
