    i did mine DIY :Smile:


    easy to do, just remove them as well as the bulbs,


    heat them at 150 in oven for a min to allow the silicon to go soft,


    pull them apart,


    spray with rattle cans and seal with clear silicon (remove the old stuff 1st)


    simple's :Smile:

    holy shit!


    why is that then?


    it was cheaper for me to buy EK9 lights from honda than it was to get the ones that were standard on the EJ6

    I think they have just re-aligned some prices with Japan


    In Japan


    Price per light the price has been 23,000Y since forever


    In UK


    Price was around

    But thats Facelift vs. Pre Facelift, pre facelifts have frosted lenses, wheres facelifts are clear, so facelift lights will always look cleaner... Plus the lenses are all old and cloudy, If he'd polished the lenses before he put them back together they would have looked alot more fresh
