Japan headlights vs usa

Do they SXE10 Japan Verison Headlights fit into our USA Version without any additional mods?

They don't bolt up properly to the USA fenders

They have a RHD halogen output, which is not good for USA roads

Those lights have been modified so that the turn signal is absolutely useless, and those halos are absolute crap.

You'd have much better results doing it yourself

Pretty much the road I am heading down at this point anyways.
- I was also able to translate the page which indicated there where tabs that could be broken or missing.

Bummer.. Oh well! Off to source some HALO Kits!

Anyone had any experience with Oracle Lighting? Their reviews are all over the place - Good, Bad, Ugly - anyone use them before?

Thinking of SMD LED HALOS, however I am concerned that the HALO diffuser is not efficient enough and I will be able to see individual LEDS.

wow broken tabs too? lol. I guess they aren't new lights huh, I thought they'd at least be new.

I don't have any experience with any halo kits, as I've never used them. It just never quite exactly fit my style. But I think Oracle isn't the only one making halos that fit our head lights, I guess keep looking? Oracle's just the top one, so easiest to find. But I'm sure there are others.
