Decisions

From 2003 to 2009 I had Morettes in my car, but one eventually broke and I could not find a replacement, so I 'settled' for black chrome JDM HID headlights. At the time I told my gf she could have my $1,000 JDMs (the blue car in one of the pics is her's) if she got me another set of Morettes. Well, 3 years later she found a set for cheap (, hasn't bought em yet). The JDMs have grown on me and now I can't decide what I want to do. Poor me right? JDMs are classier while the Morettes are more aggressive. I figured I'd see what you guys thought.

Morettes hands down as they only look good on your car.

But tastes change.... Meh.... Buy a Magic 8ball and shake it. Or make a poll on here

I like the JDM lights. I'd also remove the hella covers ( is the point of fog lights if you don't use em?) and the... stripes. So probably you are the opposite of me and should go with teh Morettes.

They are driving lights (with 100w bulbs at that) so I can't use them most of the time. The covers are regularly on after I had to buy a replacement FF1000 when a flying rock shattered one of them. The stripes were put on for the very same reason that FIA stripes were created, to individuate the car which was too plain and looked like 1,000 others once the JDMs were put on.

Is it too late to have a poll added Mosc?

Also, if it makes any difference, I have had another lip in my garage that I was debating switching to that probably looks better with JDMs, but I haven't decided on whether I was gonna use it or sell it (it's fiberglass, bleh):

stick with the JDM's unless you get the Morettes retrofitted with a decent set of lenses

I think your car looks hella good with morrettes. Her car needs some umph as well so I'm in favor of jdms going on her blue car and your silver car getting morrettes.
On the topic of the lip, well that depends on the style of it. That lip you rock now along with the morrettes is what made your car look awesomely angry IMO, but in the end it's up to you.
I would not be able to switch out my jdm's for morrettes, so I understand where your coming from.
Man! Tough call!

^ This...a retrofitted set of Morettes would be pretty unique. If you think about it. But, the JDMs also look pretty sweet. It is a tough call.

So I popped back in the thread and decided your car is sexy either way, but your ladies needs something.

Morettes look good, but the JDMs are better I think. Personally, I'm wondering how black (or dark) fog light covers would look on your car.

Question...where did you get the inserts that go between the headlights and the grill? On the jdm setup. Those are cool.
