Hey, Heath. Don't mind the locals, they're still just pissed that the repeal of "Don't Ask" has taken half the fun out of the job.

I started at 4am to drive from SC to NJ. About half hour into my drive my DD miata started over heating. So I then spent about 1.5 hours getting the car home. After that I then had to wait till 8am to go to Hertz and getting a shitty Chevy Aveo. The ride up was going great till I got north of Fredricksburg VA when I came to a stop. It took me then 2 hours to go about 3 miles. After that the drive was decent until I got on 495 about a mile from the MD boarder. We came to another stop and when I finally got to the accident I got to see a dead body on the side of the road from a pick up truck that when head first into the medium. After that was just rain and slow traffic. So after 16-17 hours in a car driving I was in a rather foul mood.

You have since them come back and been a champ. So I will take back wanting to ban you. I hope you stick around and become a valuable member of the community. We tend to come off as ******** to idiots, but after that we actually do have very large amount of knowledge about turbos and kitties.

. The projectors actually do an excellent job at curtailing glare unlike the oem lights that are on a miata or rx7 or many other vehicles and sure beats the people that just pnp hids into their regular headlight housings....

Don't be jelous...

Welcome op. I saw those on rx7club and thought they looked great.

Projector HID's (good ones) =/= HID conversion kits where you stuff a HID bulb in a halogen housing. You get worse lighting than the halogen, you blind everyone, and you look like you drive a civic. Proper projector HID's have a sharp cutoff that does not blind other drivers. The projectors I use are mercedes level lighting, with the same bulbs mercedes uses OEM, and our own ballasts and custom wiring harness. The $50 dollar china "hid" bulbs are a joke, but at 10-20x the price a proper projector setup isn't for the faint of heart. But if you want to drive ***** to the wall in the mountains or roll out at 140+ mph on the highway you kinda need to see where you're going I get the miata up above 110 at least a few times a week, and back roads daily so I spare no expense in the vision department. I used to run hella e-codes with piaa 55w driving lights (still have them) but I cant tell if they are on or off any more so I don't even bother turning them on anymore.

Sorry I'm a little obsessed with lighting, it's kinda my thing

01 and up Miata's have true projectors and they throw correctly with HID's installed.

I like being able to see at night, but not for $975. Are you going to show us how to build these?

It doesn't matter how much advertising he gets when they are 975 for the pair For that price I'd be rocking some DIY LED headlights.

They must come with gold plated surrounds with gold from the roofs of Roman churches in Europe.
