#1 S2 rear lights

Post by gib6933 » Sun Apr 27, 2008 2:09 pm

Hello all my first post here so I hope I am not going to be thrown out for asking this.
I am planning to go and have a look at a s2 fhc next weekend, and I was wondering if the rear lights could be changed to s1 lights? Did they change the shape of the car around the lights or are they just different lights in a slightly different place?

Sorry for my spelling and grammar and general English it was a very late night last night :oops:

thank you!

Depends on how much money you want to spend. No real way of changing the rear lights without considerable bodywork modification, new rear bumpers and a repaint. Could dramatically affect the value of the car as well - downwards!

You can however change the front headlights to a cowled version similar to the S1 using this kit:

It is reversible and requires no body modification or paint work.

That is a shame as I really do love the original rear lights and an S1 is going to be out of my price I suspect.
I do like the cowled headlights that would be on my list of to do thank you!
