350Z Headlight Unit Types


Recommended Posts

I'm getting close to looking for some replacement headlight units for my car as polishing the outside of mine reveals deterioration of the plastic inside the unit.

I'm wary of buying new from Nissan because of their habit of using the same part no.s even when the spec has changed.

So, can anyone tell me how many changes were made to the design and approximately when they came about please?

Hi John, the original U.K. 350Zs came with Xenon Dipped Beam and Halogen Main Beam. In 2006, the Bi-Xenon units were introduced, which are a significant upgrade on the original units. They are plug and play with the older models too. Some JDM Zeds came with halogen only.

I am not aware of any further upgrades since the bi-xenons.

RAYS, parking sensors, Tonneau Cover (StuartB), security glass, Alpine DVD satnav, Alpine digital television, DBA discs and Ferrodo pads, spare RAYS for winter, Michelin Pilot Sports for summer, Vredstein Wintrac Extremes for winter, Spill's Grounding Kit, LED rear brake lights, Carbon Fibre switch panel covers (Richard Chen), JL Audio 2 channel amp, Infinity Kappa 6.1 Perfect Speakers, Alpine reverse camera, Sony Ericsson Bluetooth phonekit with audio integration, CAT Driver Training, Nismo Exhaust. KW Variant 3.

I've just found a pair of new headlights for the 2002 to 2005 models. However, they may be for a LHD car. Anyone know if they were different to RHD cars?

(Amayama parts diagram not helpful as they only show for LH Steering)

I suspect the been pattern might be different, even the Morimoto replacement headlights for the 370z are in LHD and RHD probably for the same reason.

Current: Metallic pearl white 2012 370z GT Edition, Invidia stainless cat back exhaust, Stillen Gen 3 Intakes and K&N filters and a UpRev remap

Thanks Gav - I thought it was too easy. I wonder how one can find part no.s for RHD pre-2005 cars.

I suspect my ebay searches need to get more frequent...
