Replica type X Lights

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone has heard of replica ones, I cant seem to find any! the only ones I canfind which are nto genuine are the rice type.

 

 

Does anyone do this? I just think genuine is too much to pay for 15+ YO tailights which sometimes will be scratched etc etc.

 

Thanks!

Haven't seen replicas of the genuine ones before, and all the copies look like ass. Just shop around and you'll eventually find them at a reasonable price (~450), which isn't really much more than the gay as aids ricey ones either. Or just stick with the original ones.

There not much, a about 3 years ago it was at least 800 for a cheap 4 peice set

thanks guys you mean this guy^^

 

hmm I do like the look of them but cant really justify spending 400 on lights! I know I know, but there is so much to be done first before exterior

 

So $2000 for lights is five times too much then?

if there were any replica ones (never heard of them) they'd most likely be more than 400, and be of poor quality.

The postage quote for them to Sydney was $539.42 economy and $1081.75 express! lol.

In case you didn't know, you need all 4 pieces to make it fit right: the two tailights, the centre garnish, and the thin panel underneath (that sits just above the rear bar). That, and demand, is why they cost what they do.

 

You might find replica lights, but I doubt you'll find replica centre panel and centre garnish.

 

Buy genuine, enjoy OEM fitment and quality, and never look back. Back in the day I paid a few hundred more for these than what they're selling for now, but no regrets here - worth every dollar.

I got mine complete 4 piece for only $550 delivered from a wrecker in Melb on Ebay. I think thats a decent price.. It is well worth the money imo. If you dont want to spend the money dont bother looking for replicas.
