AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

Twinlight , www.twinlight.com.au 07 3814 4078. Will release a BA conversion for AU's in early 2004. The kit includes two fully assembled lights fitted with Narva optics mounted in an alloy chassis, along with two bumper indicators (holes have to be cut). They use standard mounting points and existing plugs.
This will give the AU the look of the BA. Cheaper than buying a BA.!

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

I'll need to see pics before I lay my judgement. Does it say anything about what models? Like AU standard lights to BA standard, or AU standard to BA XR, or AU XR to BA XR?

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

Wouldnt you need to modify the bumper, bonnets, guards etc that surround the headlight?

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

Erm I wouldn't call the ones they show on their website a BA conversion!

To fit BA lights you would need a total BA front end, including bonnet, front quarter panels, and front bumper. Then there's the light units themselves, and all the electrics, etc. etc. etc.

It would almost be cheaper to tradein on a 2nd hand BA rather than try and do this!

Yes, but you can't buy a BA_XR wagon (look alike) like this guys building.

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

Is this what you are talking about? If so, it's more like an XR conversion for the AU. And from the photo, it looks like the highbeams are the outside lights - I'm pretty sure this would not be ADR compliant.

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

Didn't see the link when I first posted. That AIN'T BA!! Heh, it would be a disgrace if it was.

Too me, it looks like a more 'mature' AU wearing reading glasses :D

If AU drivers really wanted to do something with their car, and if they already havent got so, they should get the XR headlights as they look nice.

Re: AU to BA Headlight Conversion.

If AU drivers dont like the look of their car, they should sell it and buy something they do like.
