LCI headlights/Forgestars/Coils & More

Headlights just came in from Germany so I had to snap a few quick pics. They really transform the front end.

I did do a slight mod to them, i painted the turn bulbs silver with silver engine paint from autozone. they still glow up almost 100% because i put a very very light coat on them.

I didn't get the adaptive lights so they throw a light still but I am going to be coding out the adaptive part after I get a cable.

Could you post more pics fo the blckline tail lights?? Im still not sure if I should go with these or the regular lci ones... I dont want the car to look like i just put some lamin-x on the tail lights, since i dont like the "murdered" look.

In some pictures they look very dark, and in others like yours, they look very good.

I'll try to snap some for you...but they're beautiful, I'd for sure go with them. I'd honestly like maybe just a tiny tiny bit darker overall, but how they come is still great.

Beautiful, can you add details where you sourced the LCI headlights?

Looks really good man. What kind of drop are you on? Any rubbing issues?

St coilovers. they're pretty soft so i rub on big bumps with 2 or more people in the car even though my fenders are rolled and slightly pulled in the rear.

I'm probably gonna change out the springs for stiffer ones eventually.

I have the dynamic headlights and they were plug and play with no issues. If you want the led eye brow then you have to wire it. I ended up wiring the eye brow but then unplugged them because i didn't like the look of it. Looks meaner with just the angel eyes on
