Step WGN, Face Lift Project! - Replacement Headlight Vol.1 -

16 Mar 2021

Well, they are the old and new headlights. The front is the 2009 model, and the back is the 2013 model. The 2013 model has undergone a major design change. The low beam is a projector type, and the license lamp is an LED. In addition, a cornering lamp has been added. The 2009 model does not have a cornering lamp, so we did not wire either. (It can be turned on by wiring) The reflector is a little dark gray and looks cool.
