SkidNation DRLs for NA

  1. My model of MX-5 is: Eunos
  2. I’m based near: Cobham
  3. I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: does anyone have any experience of the SkidNation DRLs for the NA?
    I attach a pic of our little red car!

Hello Philip
My Eunos is a '94 S Special Laguna Blue fitted with a 1.8 VVT 2005 engine.
Currently my DRL’s are fitted to the grill. The Skid Nation DRL’s I am sure will more
visible to other road users. I am doing a bit of research before I buy some.
(www.skidnation.co.uk other members take a look).
Please keep in touch re this topic.
Regards
Keith

My concern would be a bulb failure after fitting the Skid Nation LED conversion.
I have found a UK supplier classiccarleds.co.uk/products/2x-bay15d1157
Click catalogue indicator bulbs
To buy or not to buy, decision time?
If anybody has fitted the Skid Nation conversion I will be pleased to hear from them.

Keith, have you decided what to do about the amber tint in the enclosure? Heat up or snip it out - which I have read can be done with care.
I couldn’t identify the correct bulb in the link that you sent.

Hello Phillip

Fortunately my Eunos has clear lens, bought from MX5parts, so I do not have to carry
out amber snips.
If you click on the link it takes you to page 404 not available, however cursor catalogue,
click indicator bulbs 6th item is BAY15D1157 which I believe is the bulb used by
Skid Nation.
I am going to chat with Carl at CBS Autos MX5 specialists before I part with £139.

All the Best

Keith

Hello Phillip
Skid Nation indicator/DRL conversion kit fitted: very impressed with the result,
it certainly improves the daylight visibility of the Eunos. Some say the switch
from white DRL to amber indicator is “cool” Whatever it is certainly very visible.
Hopefully the spare bulbs ordered will not need to be used.
Cheers
Keith
