But they have terrible headlights and are nigh impossible to retrofit.

Just off a quick search: http://shop.radioflyerinnovations.com/Bi-x...dlights-015.htm

If not those then I'm sure there's something out there by now that'd provide adequate lighting. You'd think someone would have an ECE style lamp that uses 9011 and 9012 bulbs as an easy and inexpensive upgrade, and they might but I haven't bothered looking into it. At any rate it'd be a small oversight to sort out.

Those are the very old and very poor Mini H1 projectors (now the most common $30 generic Bix projector), the "low beam" shot is just the high beam shot with a black block over the top half of the image. They're not very good projectors, poor width, lots of foreground, no hotspot to speak of, weak high beams.

It'll be some time before I get a C5, I'll look into options for ****s and giggles later. Speaking of ECE lamps though, you'd think they'd be available since I'm fairly sure the C5 was sold over in Europe but it's probably like any Euro Firebird and Camaro parts and they're impossible to find.

And plastic so high wattage bulbs are likely to damage the bowls.

Turns out I'm not entirely crazy but apparently the ECE lights aren't cheap at all, oddly enough they use two H4 bulbs per lamp and from what I found are made of metal and glass. A thread with some before/after I found real quick: http://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/c5-tec...lights-t84.html

Yet another head scratcher from GM, pretty decent lights for European cars but domestic cars be damned to cheap crappy plastic lights.

Looks like a single H4 per lamp, not two.
