Default MR Works headlights - 2theextreme project

Hey all! About 2 months ago I contacted Marco @ MR Works to discuss modifying my headlights. What follows are photos of the design and how they turned out installed on my 370.


After confirming with Marco & Ryan about the design I wanted I went a slightly different way than others might. I actually purchased a brand new set of headlights through Z1 Motorsports (a sponsor on the board) and they sent them out to San Diego for modification. Once they arrived, Marco & Ryan began work on them and sent some photos in the early stages:









Now, some photos of the shrouds installed back into the flat black housing. I chose flat black so that it would match my flat black Volk TE-37's.







Now, let's turn these bad boys on.....I asked for Landing Strips, Angel Eyes, and Demon Eyes. They also upgraded my parking light to a much brighter LED.










Next post will include the final look after install. I had them professionally installed. I did not do it myself but I'm sure if you are good with wiring (MR Works can supply you with install instructions for your vehicle if desired) you can do it.

Marco & Ryan completed my project within about 3 to 4 weeks due to the type of modifications I asked for...average turn around time from MR Works is between 3 to 10 days. Once I received my headlights I made arrangements to get them installed along with some CF parts. Below are photos of how my 370 looks now.....we call it "The Smurf"!









I have the Landing Strips designed to turn on as soon I turn my parking or headlights on. MR Works included a switch (ON when pushed up, OFF when the switch is in the center position, and ON again in the down position) which controls the Angel and Demon Eyes. I had the switch installed between the heated seat switches. The same place the roadster has the switch that controls the convertible top. Just one thing I have to remember.....if I have the Angel or Demon on I must remember to turn them off. Currently they aren't set to turn off like the headlights (no timer). Let there be modified light!!









How about some nighttime shots?









So, there you have it! I am a very pleased and happy customer! I just had my first car meet yesterday (April 18) and the headlights were the big draw and discussion on my Z. I was more than happy to let people know: I had my headlights designed by Marco & Ryan at MR Works.

Also, I sent my original OEM headlights back to MR Works as they "bought" them from me. Those turned into the next "core set" which I understand has already been turned around into a new set of MR Work headlights....these guys are fast!


My upgrade included the following:

MR Works Modded Headlights:
- Housing Flat Black (to match the Volk TE-37's)
- Projector Shrouds - Color-coded (Blue)
- Turn Signal Shroud - Color-coded (Blue)
- Reflector Strip - Color-coded (Blue)
- On/Off/On Switch (to control which modifications come on & when)
- MR Angel Eyes Projector LED's (White)
- Demon Eye (Blue)
- Projector Demon
- Parking Light Demon
- LED design on vertical landing strip (White)

Here's a video to showcase the hard work that Marco & Ryan put into this project:

They were a huge hit at my first car show....had quite a few people stopping and asking how and who did my headlight modification. MR Works!

Are you saying you couldn't do the headlights by yourself ?!?!?!


J/K

P.S. I would concentrate on investing $$$ into performance upgrades NOW! Your "SMURF" looks great!

looks good but seems like way too much invested for just lights. I would have been content with just the halo leds but with the addition w/ all the others is just too much.

this thread really makes me feel like retrofitting the gt-r headlights i've got onto the Z.

that's a legit mod.

just don't think that much looks better than stock, though at least the work you paid for
seems to be of reasonable quality.

I trust you realize that all cars are going to have the so called "Audi mod". These LED daytime running lights are required on all cars sold in the European Union starting in 2014. Therefore, they will be on all new cars worldwide.
