Im 98% sure it was a 99-00.

Ebay jobbies at $99 :lol:

They work surprisingly well too, low beam is great high beam could leave a little to be desired though. I just cut the rest of the headlight away and used the tubes that the light sits in.

Here i found the link.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Honda-EK-Civic-2 ... 240%3A1318

There are about 4.5 inches and the hole in the falcon is 5in from memory. i used rubber to fill the gap.

Word of warning if you f**k it up or don't fit them right don't come blaming me :)

half the price of the integra ones...

Are the lights inside that housing actual glass globes? sealed beam or replaceable?

I used after market civic lights in my eb. See gallery. There actually fixed into the hole rather than bolted to the body, but still have the adjustment as the lights sit in a shell and the shell is fixed to the front bar.

Frank.... I had considered both ways.... If the integra lights would fit in, in one piece that would be the optimium.. but failing that I had been looking for 4 inch lights for the same reason as flash was...

I'm kinda excited actually.... this could be very cool.

Well, I originally got into this because I thought it was crazy what XR headlights were going for even in bad nick.. wanted to find an alternative..

I'm still going to try the integra lights first... if they work then I'll get the ones in the photo.... but if all else fails.. at least I know the civic lights are a workable fallback. it hurts me to put civic parts in my ford though... most of the drivers I hate drive civics..

Yeah i know... I don't like it much either but i refuse to pay the outrageous cost they ask for the genuine items.

If i where you id go the Integra ones to. Be sure to post the pics up when you've done it and let us know the mods required.

Maybe put them (the photo's) in this thread or post up a link if you start another one as ill keep this thread in my watched list so i get to see what they look like :)

yes.. many of my "mods" will end up getting documented.. like my stealth supercharging... I'll add this one to the list..

My front bar will only stay EL XR on the top.. the bottom will probably be BF XR.. as will the side skirts and rear bar... I can get all that stuff pretty cheaply so can't see any reason not to and would make an interesting and unique car...
