Headlights 2dr/4dr ??

If I'm buying aftermarket oem replacement headlights Does it matter if it says for the 2dr or 4dr? Arent the headlights the exact same for both models?? If I buy the 2dr lights can they fit into my 4dr? Thanks

yes...just make sure you get proper installation instructions. Some aftermarkets don't come with complete and proper wiring diagrams.

Headlights are the same, corner lights are different between sedan/coupe.

Yeah, watch out for one piece headlights. The ones that are on my car now, which were on there when I bought it were clearly for 2 doors (they are cheap ebay lights) and the guy that put them in, used some kinda sealer to fill in the space because they are too small.

The moral of the story... Stay away from these awful looking 1 piece headlights

I know. So many other things just took priority over it. Coilovers, new brakes/rotors, M front bumper. I still have your corners sitting in my basement. hahaha

New headlights coming soon enough.

While we're on the topic of lights... My OBC sais tail light failure.... and sure enough the left tail light is out but it lights up when I hit the brake or signal a turn and the same for front left corner marker... the both of them are out but only on running lights mode, when I signal and hit the brakes they work just fine... Do the left tail light and left front corner light share a fuse...
