Quick answer: There aren't any.

Long answer: If you want anything fancier than what you already have, you'll have to make them yourself. There aren't very many aftermarket parts available for the exterior of our cars.

Look through some of the pictures around here, you might find something you like. PM the owner of the car and see what they say.

That's not exactly true.
I found these a long time ago. I'm sort of surprised that I've not seen anyone using them.

Take a look at these

Cheers,

Looks like that might work with the sealed-beam cars (the ones with black plastic, indented headlights), but most definitely not any other model of Metro/Sprint/Firefly.

And before anyone mentions it, I've seen altezza-style tail lights for a Swift/Firefly sedan, but not for a hatchback.

I dont know, $40 for an H4 assembly? For that price you can scrounge up a pair with parking lights and possibly a halo ring on eBay or something. Tailights, I''m pretty sure there are no aftermarket parts for them, and you're basically stuck with home-customizing smoked lenses or just plain stock. I'm sure someone can make some nice Euro style lights (something about making new lenses and baking the fronts and backs together?)

I've been wanting to upgrade to the XFi/Convertible lights, but they are really expensive ($80-$120 for each side). Tailights will have to wait for a while though, until someone finds a workable alternative
