Hey guys I found this bloke who makes xr6 style light setups, his webby is twinlight.com.au I was wondering if anyone has purchased from him before and what the quality is like? The pic of the mont with xr6 lights on the website gave me a halfa but its a lot of cash to part with, especially as I want a hid setup...

I personally don't like the look of them in anything other than an XF or XG, but that's just me, in an XF or XG they look good (because they look like factory XR lights) If I want twin light style front end, I'll chase up a genuine XR front end. But that's just me.

I can't decide whether to go venom+xr6 lights or modded fairmont lights with venom front bar. Swc's car does look pretty a*** though. If I mod my mont lights I'm gonna need to build a vacuum forming setup. Probably only work out slightly cheaper if I do go that way.

The twinlights dont look too bad - I thought they looked pretty good on the EB. I also prefered that they werent a one-piece front - Standard parts can be used for repair not the (very hard to find) XR Stuff

Twinlight set ups are worth every cent, I cannot recommend them highly enough. I have a set on my car as well as the wagon. better than anything Factory, which wouldn't be hard and better than XR lights. Low beam alone is 5 times better than high beam on stock lights and when you hit high beam........... well they are great. Only way to go any better would be HID and even then they would need to be a quality set.

+1. Practical and look great. Are expensive. But as mentioned, worth it

Twinlights produce far better light than the factory lights, and do not fade as the factory ones do.

Depends on the model car...

The twinlights for the EA-ED look cheap nasty in my opinion... But may be extremely functional and better light output... I love the one piece grill the genuine XR offers, but the old light technology is a let down... Hence I retrofitted proper HID projectors inside my XR low beams (see my build thread)... Light output is now awesome on low beam... Pretty good on high beam with my phillips H3 Diamond Vision globes and I'm happy considering the car is both really low giving a bad vantage point of the distance anyway and 20 years old...

Damn shame aircraft landing lights are illegal...

People seem to always have broken grills, and lamps, and lamp frames... But in the years I've been running my set up, I've never had anything break, have hit a couple of birds and thought "OH NO!" all has hung in well though... The poor old head light frames, plastic is turning hard and brittle, I'd love to have galvanised steel frames made and way very well get it done one day... The plastic frames are the let down and twinlights fix that right up...

The later EF/EL style twinlights, esp the fairmont photo they show with the projectors in it looks awesome... But I'm still a fan of the one piece EL XR grill... I don't know exactly what changes on EF/EL but there seems to be 2 or 3 different headlight shapes and bonnet shapes... If you wanted to keep the fairmont/lane style bonnet + grill then twinlights enable you to do where if you ran XR grill the bonnet changes? No really up with EF/EL that much...

As I said depends on the look... If you see a boxcar with twinlights, I tend to look at it and say to myself, "he took the easy way out of having the XR look"... But that's me... Some others (as above) like the twinlights because it means they don't need to find the rare XR stuff, though it is often on ebay, just is always dear and awkward to ship...

Comes down to opinion... You'll find both arguments in here, people who love the look and people who hate the look, and I'm both ways depending on the type of car...

Cheers,
Tim
