why are the JDM xenon headlights 1400-1700$ seriously.. WTF
is it the actual OEM kit that came on the newer ones?
Is that for the pair or each? I'm doing the +'02 conversion on my NSX, and those suckers retail for $1k a piece plus HID's. I get a 30% discount at my local Honda dealer, but that's still pretty expensive. I feel ya.
yea, its for a pair of OEM 99 spec..
i mean, i understand that the housings are made of glass, which is awesome, but still.. wtf
It's OEM, + glass + car no longer made = ass rape
what do you have to change on the NSX to do that conversion?
I much prefer the newer shape, but people would have to not be able to tell at all.
It's surely more than the lights / wheels.
Because they want you to buy an eBay conversion kit for your US headlights so you can be one of those douchebags with the glaring blue headlights that I love to report to the police.
front and rear bumper, hood, wheels, and headlights
and if you're really picky the brakes
yea, i figured. but still.. Fawk!
my friend is in Japan and he is scouring the junk yards.. lol
a waste of money for what you get really. imo at least
and you should know by now that everything for this car is expensive. oem or not
Thats not really worth it either IMO. Spend the 1400 bucks on a new set of twins, or some coilovers, or something worth while. Put a newer JDM front fascia on it though, those look bangin.
It's not the whole bumper that changes, just the lower valance. If you're going for the whole 9, you also need to change out the tail lights, side skirts, and other misc parts.
We're just talking headlights hear, but to change the headlights on the NSX, you also need new hood and front bumper, and some different support hardware.
A while back, somebody backed into my NSX, tearing into the bumper. When it was at the shop, I ordered the newer style bumper instead of the original one. Bolts right up. So in a way, that guy who backed into my car essentially paid for about 1/3-1/2 of my conversion
I still need to get the headlights and the hood. There's a small gap between the bumper and the popup headlights that will be taken up by the new lights.
i could easily just buy an aftermarket HID kit for the z32.. so it's not like i would really spend the money on the headlamps.. unless i could pick up a whole 99 front clip for like 3k.. might be worth it then lol
thats not gonna happen, unless you get very lucky.
try to find some early model JDM headlights that dont have the nipples and such, and get an HID kit from ebay
a few in the z32 community have had good experiences with these
my buddy has found a few here and there, but there is always something wrong like cracked glass.. and he seems to only find left headlamps intact lol
