Headlight conversion is one of the most popular styling procedures for the first generation Mazda Miata, which has “blind” folded headlamps. There are plenty of headlight conversion kits available in aftermarket. In this article I’ll show some popular or original headlight conversion kits available in aftermarket.
Dual lamp by K.G. Works
These headlights mimics one used in M-speedster Mazda concept car shown in 1993. It is easy to install, just exchange the units. The kit is custom made, but original is available if you order it from Japan.
Flush lamps by Hayashi
Firstly it seems like fixed headlamps, but it isn’t. Actually, it slightly rises from rear a bit like old front engine Porsches. Unfortunately, this kit is out of production since 1999.
Fixed headlights by Brainstorm performance (BSP)
This kit features completely fixed headlights with acrylic lens cover. Your car will become 15 lbs lighter and more aerodynamic. It is still in production.
It is custom set which is quite funny looking. There is no much info about the manufacturer, availability and price, but you may find it in used parts. This kit makes your Miata look like old Austin-Healey Sprite.
Fixed headlights by Barchetta
One of the most impressive-looking and nice headlight conversion variant by the oldest Japan Miata owner club.
Low profile by Bellof
It is a very rare kit but with great build quality and looks great.
Fixed by Garage Vary
Another Japanese custom kit for headlight conversion. It comes with modified front bumper and looks great with this bodykit, in my opinion reminding Ferrari F40.
Low profile dual lamp by Cobalt
Really nice low profile headlights using Hella lamps. Looking neat, but requires some work – you need to cut small section of engine bay.
Custom headlights for Miata NB by Morette
Nice looking headlights for the second generation Miata. Looking a bit retro but definitely refresh the image of your car.
There is plenty of headlight kits in the aftermarket, available for all 3 generation Miatas, most of them comes along with same design taillights, to complete the look. Most of conversion kits doesn’t require much rebuilding of the car, so you may do it yourself.
