Here's a thread worth reviving.
Boy it is tempting to use a fixture like this for headlamps for several reasons.
The unit has a small diameter and you could get your doors super low with these.
I bet I could mount these three across.
Of course, they are also inexpensive.
They are e-code certified forward fog lamps and not DOT.
The DOT requires all lighting to be clearly marked on the front.
All states (and most likely smaller jurisdictions as well) somewhere in their vehicle code have verbiage like " must conform to DOT 108".
These are illegal to use in the United States.
I think Canada would be OK. (fog lamps only!)
Most reasonable cops are not going to write you if you are not offensive.
You know, blinding people, loud exhaust, brandishing your CC,.......
Problem is not all cops are reasonable.
Run into one who understands, cares, and knows the statute, you are screwed.
Personally, I am confident that I could run these as fog lights without issue.
But I am older, calm, and get waxed by girls at the track.
The e-code certification is 13 which means Luxumberg (not sure if that is important).
These may be properly designed fog lights.
If so they will make crappy headlights.
Certainly will not work as a high beam at all.
They would be great for custom show car installations.
Provided you never had to use them at night.
The cool thing about a Fiero pop-up bucket is:
unplug light, 6 bolts later they are out.
Not true with the others
