What headlights do you have on your Mini?

I'm looking to see all different types of headlights, daytime running lights, LEDs, halogens, everything.

Thanks,
Corey.

Autopal headlights with a replay wiring kit from wired by wilson. :shades: Cibie h180's are said to be one of the best.

Lucas P700's are going on my Cooper project. Depends on the look you're going for but they work for me

Halo headlights, but I took the standard halo bulbs out and drilled and put 20 led bulbs into each unit.

Busy with my Xenon projectors - they will have a halo behind the shroud too as DRLs.

I've got a set of P700s on my car (modern Lucas PL700 copies). No idea what make/brand they are, bought them used from a friend of a friend... I love the way they look. :D

Mine are some Bosch Halogen conversions. Oddly rather flat faced!

I haven't fitted them yet, but we have an old Range Rover lying out the back. I've taken the lights off that because they were quite good compared to the sealed beam ones the Mini had when I got it. They are a little flatter faces than the standard Mini light, but they look the same diameter and should fit okay

I got tired of dealing with bad reflectors and cheap bulbs with low output and decided to make my own HID Projectors.

Are they legal?

I don't have any output shots of my own, but here are some from my friend's car with a nearly identical setup.

Legality will vary on where you live and local laws. Some places require auto-leveling to technically be legal. Honestly, the car sits so low, and with the Projector's perfect cutoff line, I'm not blinding anyone even when going uphill, etc. And they are far less annoying to oncoming traffic than some of the legal aftermarket alternatives. High wattage halogens have more light scattering, and even legal LED replacements have less output and more annoying scattering.
