Just a quick message to get a feel for the interest for twin headlights for the EF ad EL Fairmont without having to replace the whole front end.

I think its a great idea as you don't get the ugly XR front you can keep your nice Fairmont grill.

The product is in prototype stages and the real thing will be available in a couple of months. Is there any interest out there and what kind of price tag would people be willing to spend?

lol ugly xr front, those twinlights look like such a cheap knockoff in my opinion. Remind me of all the dodgy fakes coming out of china.

I would rather the standard fairmont front end.

Of course it looks like a cheap knockoff, it's done with photoshop. I haven't got the real one on my car yet. That was just put there to draw attention to the forum.

The original will look more like this photo. Except it will be made of a better material and obviously it would be colour matched.

I know its a photoshop but i have seen the pictures of the prototypes before, thats what i was reffering too.

They just dont 'integrate' well with the rest of the front, will wait to see final product.
