Daydreaming today, thinking of how much I like the shape of the new 2011+ Elise headlamps...how would they look on an S2 clam vs the S2.5 they come on?

Some guy who hosted a photo of a 2011 Elise from the front on his website.

Here's a quickie for you, BTW last year I almost pulled the trigger on a set but after finding out each lens was about a grand each (not to mention LED ballast etc I quickly changed my mind Lol






P.S ^^^ That's one angry mofo!!

That looks weird to me, the shape/lines of the bumper around the lower part of the headlight look off. The look is reminiscent of the old import tuner days from a decade ago where people would cut and paste all sorts lights and vents on different cars. IMHO leave it as it is, it looks awesome.:)

It does look better from that angle, but from the head on pshop it looks off. I could also be that the lights are angled up a bit more in Renderman's shop. So it might work if they are angled correctly.

There's a member doing the new Elise lights on his car, but his clam is completely modified so no telling how it would look without heavy bodywork.

OG looks better, besides the newer headlights are different shape and you'd have to reshape the holes (if you didn't already know that.).
