Also, the blinker parts seem to stick out a ways past the fenders on both sides. Are these using the same contour as the stock headlights?




It looks like that to me too. I daresay that a fourth prototype wouldn't be unreasonable. Nonetheless they do look good...

guys, we already took pictures and documented the fitment problems with the lights on the 31st. there's still one more set of prototypes before they go into production. when they come out, they should be perfect

I really don't know if these "suggestions" are really us questioning the fitment of the Morettes, as we know that they are going to be revised. I think we are more or less asking if that is what they are "supposed" to look like, and people just have differing opinions. Some may want them to stick out a little bit, while some might want a smooth "OEM" like curve.

My point exactly. I too think it would look pretty bad if it didn't have a perfect curve to it. Evidently people that were at Mikey Boy's house are saying that they are NEAR PERFECT, so I assume that those certain people might like the way they look as they sit. Difference in opinion/taste.

I don't know about a difference in opinion or taste. If they had a third light in them and some people liked that and some didn't that would be a difference in taste. IMHO if the hump stays, then they just won't look right.

"what about the DRLs?"

they will perform exactly the same. the city lights take place of the parking lights on this set. will it be that way when they are released? i have no idea. the passenger side blinker is almost perfect the driver side needs some work. more pics coming soon.
