Go to partsouq and it is an online parts catalogue for your car, or any vin number you plug into it, and it saves you waiting for a mitsubishi rep to call you back, and you can google straight from it, or some of the parts even have images so you know what to look for :D

There is a video on the link, and they look to be plug and play. not sure if they are competitively priced, or Australian stock.

How did you get on with the Ralliart Bonnet?

I was looking at those ones but I read the description and the site recons only fits evo's

And with the ralliart bonnet the pricing is so much and I also need to replace the front bar aswell so thinking maybe just leaving it stock for now..

You shouldn't need a new bar for just a bonnet change, they're the same shape just lighter and holes in it :lol:

Or do you mean a new kit bar like evo style?

Without looking at the backs of the headlights, to me they are the same, the only difference could be Evos having HID perhaps?

Ohh no I got into an accident and by bonnet I'd dented near the latch and the front bar is cracked

Yeer probably I will need to look into it because I am hoping that the hid's can be compatible

I have these headlights, bought them from JDM Accessories a while back. They're a partner for CT Auto, and this housing will fit all CJ-CF models so you'll be fine. Price isn't so competitive, yes they are pricey but they're priced the same on aliexpress and other wholesaler sites. DRL is not so bright during the day, nowhere near as bright as shown on photos on the website but the LED chips are definitely upgradable. You can pay with Afterpay on CT Auto or zipPay on JDM Accessories site if you don't feel like blowing all your money on them at once, that's what I did anyway haha.

They come with white halogen globes which put out a decent beam, but a ballast is recommended if you're after a strong wide beam. These also have the blue/purple tinge you see on some late model Audi/Mercedes, you may have seen cars in rear view mirror with the projector reflection shining blue/purple, meaning it's a high quality projector.
However, if you don't want to spend money and fit a ballast, you can always use LED bulbs which produce the same effect as HID but just not as a strong beam.
I can send you a link to one that I bought from Wish if needed,~ 55w waterproof ballast, pretty decent quality for the price of $35, HID globes included too.

As with the Evo hood, it's a direct fit meaning no special modifications which is always nice. Evo genuine front bumper and rear bumper need small modification to fit, aftermarket bumper needs no modification. You can find them on wholesaler sites, the aftermarket ones shipped from China don't have the rear bumper back bulging out due to the Lancer not being widebody like the Evo.

Here's what I mean:

Aftermarket mars performance bumper

Aftermarket bulge bumper

Aftermarket chinese/taiwan bumper no bulge
