hi, have a 96. bought the 2 lowprofile light setup from mossmotors and cobalt, but never put them on. saw the oracle flush mount full kit. looking for anyone who has installed either one and what their thoughts and opinions are, before I do anything, like sell the 2 light low profile for the flush mount or install the 2 low profile. thanks.

Hi there. You wouldn't be joining here to only try and sell your low profile headlights would you?

Not sure how much info you're going to find here. We're more about making our car go fast.

When I had my NA, I tried a set of flush mounts that were either very similar to or were the Oracle kit and didn't like them. They produced some glare from the light hitting the lower edge of the front bumper. Where I live that was a problem as there is very minimal street lighting, so it may not be as noticeable where there is more light at night. A while later I got a set of the Moss/Cobalt lights, added HIDs in the projectors, and stuck with them, never liked the barn doors.

When I became a member, it was because I wanted to beat every SRT-4 or Mustang 5.0 that pulled up next to me. Do your headlights make boost?

No, but they look like two parachutes.

Try advanced searching to answer your question first. Below where you type the keywords set it to "Search titles only", that way you get better results. Also, you'd probably want to post this sort of thing under "General Miata Chat" if searching fails to yield the desired results.
