MARS Performance Headlights & Taillights

Postby Masochist » Thu Jan 10, 2019 4:20 pm

Hey guys,

Unfortunately it has come time to sell the lancer. Its over 240k km and the problems are piling up faster than i can afford to fix em. I have been looking for RAs but unfortunately nothing in my area in my price range (Cheapest i found was 29k for 2012 ralliart with 40k km ... bit out of my budget)

With that, i know trading in with these on will not increase value, so have taken em off and looking to sell these privately

https://marsperformance.com.au/Black-LE ... edan-07-18
https://marsperformance.com.au/Black-3D ... VO-X-07-17

Will fit all CJ model Lancers, and I believe the same headlights are used in the new CF lancers as well (with the slightly curvy front bumper). Also should fit the ASX models which have the same front end.

RRP on these are:

$359.99 Tail Lights
$699.99 Head Lights

Not looking for anyone to pay that as they are second hand, but just giving new pricing so people can make offers accordingly. I have also left the wiring setup i had (with fuse tap direct to fuse box for drl connection) for plug and play connection, even happy to talk thru installation with buyer

Few notes about them, Taillights have a slight crack along one side on the right hand housing, this is from where they were repaired. The Headlights come with Narva +130 Halogen Globes, these are $99 from Supercheap Auto for the pair.

Open to offers, and i can find out postage costs as well if people arent near Toowoomba QLD for pickup ... postage will be on top of price unless its all agreed upon. PM with any questions and i can supply photos etc of the devices.

I'd be interested in the headlights honestly, but gonna need to see some photos of the condition, etc.

Could you detail a bit more what you have for the wiring setup? Did you have the DRLs running whenever the car was running, or do they switch off when the headlights come on?

Pictures of the Headlights from when I installed them, then the last 2 images are of the headlights in their current state, sitting in the box they will be posted in (I removed all the padding to get the headlights sitting so you could see the lenses), I had them wired against a fuse tap that had power as soon as the car had power (under accessory power), and then delayed power off until about 15 seconds after you removed the keys from ignition, this is how the instructions that came with them advised to wire them. I had thoughts of changing the wiring to use the power feed off the DRL the Lancer comes stock with ... you know, those little LED lights on the outer edge that flicker from factory ... but never got around to investigating making this change.

Headlights are like new, a little dusty, but no marks etc that I could see. Photos don't really do them justice, only difference from when I bought them is theyre a bit dusty on the back side. If you would like specific area's photoed, please advise what you want photo's of, and I can show ... im no photographer, but will give it my best.

One thing I have noticed, is the links above show a static indicator on the headlights. The ones that I purchased a few years ago have sequential indicators ... so when you turn your blinker on, the blinker fluid runs from inside to out. There is a photo above showing the lights mid sequence.

Taillights are as below:

Taillights use factory connectors/bulbs. So for reverse/indicator, use the existing loom/socket/bulb ... for the brake lights, the tail lights have a plug which connects into the loom as though it was the brake bulb.

Out of interest are these lights ADR compliant?
You can sell stuff all day long that isn't complaint and there's no law against it that I can find.
However when you put it on your car your the one who gets pinged for it.
Don't let me stop you putting it on your car.
I think they look very nice indeed
But be warned the boys in blue do blintzes every now and then and target window tinting and lights etc

The cops picked on everything on my lancer when I had it except for the lights. The CJ had no bodykit, and they tried pinging me for being too low (was only on lowered king springs), tried pinging the tint, but only had 35% VLT, tried pinging my exhaust ... granted I had varex mufflers that I could open and close valves for sound, but never got picked up on that, even got told my E85 Flex Fuel Sensor was a detectable mod. Not once did they look at any lighting on my car. With that being said, I have asked the Australian Manufacturer of these whether they were ADR Compliant, they came back advising they have never had anyone complain they weren't compliant, so didn't agree they were compliant or not. Normally what cops will pick on with Lighting is tinted lighting or coloured globes ... if you don't draw attention to them, and stick with Halogen, LED globes (HID globes are not legal on most headlight bodies due to not having the correct headlight focus and becoming a blinding hazard) you should be fine. I had, as mentioned the Narva 130+ Halogens in them, but also ran LEDs for a bit as well.

I had these in for 3 years, and never got pulled over once for them. Got pulled over hundreds of times for other things, but never the lights, but as pointed out by Bumblebee, being as they don't have the ADR compliance sticker, you can theoretically be pulled over for having them.

It's not a theory you can be pulled.over for non ADR compliant equipment it is a fact.
It is very clearly written in the ADR laws of country for open viewing pleasure by all who decided they wish to educate themselves in the road laws , seeing though it is your responsibility as a citizen of the country to bring yourself up to speed and not anyone elses job to do that I would rather do it myself and know exactly what is happening rather then take a wild stab in the dark with a "I dunno" or "yeah she's all right mate" or "yeah I reckon "

Never claimed it was a theory, never claimed it was compliant, did claim i had not been pulled over in 3 years of using them, did claim i had been pulled over for other things with the vehicle and lights were not targeted. Did claim i had contacted the manufacturer who couldnt confirm they were compliant.

I have seen others around brisbane with these and other non adr compliant lights, unsure where your from bumblebee but raining on someone elses parade is a dick move. I never said anything against your original comments, purely passed on the information i was aware of given having been running them for 3 years.

In my experience, cops will target those who are easily pinned ... loud cars, very low ride, dark tint, aggressive driving ... something they can not easily make stick, Most cops will not bother with things they need to investigate unless you have royally pissed them off. The only way a cop can prove non adr compliance is to run checks etc, which takes time and most dont bother. Hence them picking on my exhaust, tint, ride height etc not the lights.

I fully agree ... educate yourselves. It has saved me a number of tickets knowing the road laws and my rights. But trying to tell people your opinion is the way that needs to be followed when you havent experienced the thing for yourself is counterintuitive to being a car enthusiast. At least that is my opinion ... i wont force it on others like some other members here.

(Edit: my comment of theoretically being pulled over for them was aimed at the fact i had never been pulled over for using them, but had been pulled over for other things)
