C5 Non Popup headlights Photos

Here are the pics!!!

Hello guys,

I'm new in here, usually I hang around on my Italian Corvette Site but I remember reading some time ago on this forum a lot of comments about changing the headlights with non-popup , thuis was before I decide to do it and I believe at the time there were a lot of people interested so here are some pics of my 98 vette with her new "eyes"!!!!!
By the way at the moment I'm working onboard a Cruise Ship out of LA so if you have question give me always soemtime before I can get back online....
Not sure how to upload picture so I have insert them in a word file...hope you can see and hope you like it......

Ciao,

The cost of the Light itself is about 900$ , then you need to modify slightly the front fascia and the side fender so you'll need a paint job for that so it all depend how much it cost in your paint shop:thumbsup:
Here is the front....

That car looks absolutely amazing! I have the C5R projector lights on mine too and its by far one of my favorite mods! They are not as cool as yours but I still love them. And you did what I did and did the xenons at the same time no since even doing the conversion and not doing the xenons IMO.

Guys thanks very much for teh nice comments:D :D !!!!
I'm not close to Gaeta as Trieste is on the North east side of Italy...but at the momeent I'm not at home but on Princess Cruises Ship where I'm the second in Command cruising out of Los Angeles for one more week and then up to Alaska cruising out of Vancouver until August when I go back home to drive again my baby.....

As per the light these are the original light of a FIAT COUPE'.....so as you said they are Italian..... You can buy them as a original spare parts for the Coupe' in any reatailer shop for Fiat.. or if you look on ebay.it there are always some available ...
