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 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.

Really nice low profile headlights using Hella lamps. Looking neat, but requires some work – you need to cut small section of engine bay.
