Hi everyone! I'm new to the club and need your advice!

What's up 86 squad/Fam!?

My name is Kyle, I'm new to the forum because I recently purchased a 2015 Scion FR-S 3 months ago and I love it so far. I'm currently in good financial budget to finally modify my car. I just recently purchased the Valenti Helix Sequential Clear Lens Red Base tail lights for my Crystal white Pearl FR-S. I just want to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts about the valenti tailights, and what would you recommend for head lights that would compliment the tail lights for the color of my car. I'm just trying to go for a nice clean look for my car, figured I should take one step at a time. Would definitely love to hear all your advice, any good sites and places near Los Angeles that sells modifications for the right price as well. Nice to meet all of you and hopefully this beginning of something great!

Welcome!

Personal taste varies quite a bit - might I suggest that you look through the photo galleries for your car color and see what you think looks good? You can then PM the owner to ask about it or post a link for us to identify the products.

Good luck and enjoy your new car!

Can't go wrong with the Winjets..

The Valenti headlights are pretty cool too, and probably better quality than the Winjets

Hi Kyle and welcome to ...... The Forum .......

I'd suggest you just leave the headlights alone and buy a BIG wing ......

(not really)

Yeah, I was heavily considering the Winjets, I just don't know how I feel about the no turn signal on the headlights. So possibly the spyder headlights or Valenti.

Thank you for your pic and advice! I was thinking the spec d tuning as well, because of the turn signal. Main reason why I'm hesitant on purchasing the winjets, since they don't supple the turn signal.

You called? lmao.

OP the gallery is probably the best place to start as mentioned before: WHITEOUT FR-S compilation
Headlights you'll find a wide range of experiences for the aftermarket stuff. Personally I've found the Spec-D stuff to be really cheap, Winjet is generally well made, but light output on both I've read isn't as great as the stock projectors or even with a RetroQuik upgrade for HIDs (see: The Retrofit Source).

Welcome to the forums dude!
