Default Headlights

I have a 08 touring 350z that I got a few months back. I'm interested in getting these SPEC-D black halo projector headlights. Problem is that they're fitment is for models 03-06. So I was wondering if I would need an adapter or a conversion kit or something of that sort. Thank you, and help is greatly appreciated.

Don't replace your OEM '08 projectors with them. Not only do they look terrible IMO, but you would be downgrading.

For reference:




Now, if you already have some crappy aftermarket headlights and you're trying to upgrade, there are much better alternatives. (i.e., depo with sti-r lens swap)

Don't f*** your car with that sort of junk. As a rule of thumb, if you can buy it on eBay, or from JM Auto Racing (a "vendor" here") you don't want it.

At least you were smart enough to ask - keep it up, and enjoy the Z.

Okay, so I would really like black headlights with halos (preferably not smoked) would you recommend anything else along those lines?

OP, if you want the blacked out look, but no smoked lens, you have a few options:

1. ebay depo lights and swap the sti-r lens from TRS (theretrofitsource.com) for better light output and cutoff pattern.

2. open the headlights yourself by baking them and black them out yourself. you can add halos, demon eyes, ironman mods, etc. while they're open (https://my350z.com/forum/body-interi...-many-pix.html)

3. get a 3rd party company to mod them for you if you lack the testicular fortitude to diy (i.e., http://zworklights.com/)
