Re: Anyone have pics of the crystal headlight mod? (DaPeaz)

is the light output far superior? and do you have to go w/ a bluish bulb, or can you go regular halogen ala mk3 bulb?

The ones in the ebay link you included above are to convert sealed beam to H4 headlights. there are also the full assemblies available, although a little more pricey.
I found a decent increase in light output. I still have to relay them to see the full potential tho.

but do you think they are worth the conversion or is it cooler to stay stock? and the ebay link says they are for cabriolets but where do u think the best place to buy them from is?

Doesn't your cabriolet already have H4's? If it does, these will not fit your car. When they say that it will fit Cabriolets, they would be talking about the earlier ones that have the sealed beam headlights.
I would probably stick with the stock ones. The crystal clears would look weird beside the stock inner lights. If you are concerned about light output, try relaying them and make sure they are aimed properly. Alot of people don't realize how important it is to have them aimed properly.
