Did a lad reverse into you or something?

A lad came into the shop the other day looking for a 01> lamp fitted to a 99/98 car that he reversed into and my bro gave him my number to see if i knew of one for sale, think he was from up your neck of the woods

I can get you a brand new set for $550 USD. Its got that blue lense also. Or I can get you chrome instead.

I have that Blue tint that Americans like :lol:
I havent installed them yet, and I will be running 6000k bulbs. Hopefully its still good visibility at night.
I like to see at night. Thats why I didnt go with 8000k bulbs.

probably not a starter I'm afraid as US lights won't pass our car test due to the different light beam spread... :(

Its not USDM headlights. Its the exact same one in the OP pic. JDM FTW, and I can source one out for you, for that price. It can be shipped directly to you, from Japan.

USDM lights suck.

Do the JDM lights not have a different beam pattern and so not give the right light for you in the US?? I was told that if I put USDM lights in my car that they'd be shinning in towards the ditch.

What side of the road do you guys drive on? We drive on the Right side

Sorry it took so long to reply.

USDM lights have adjustments for up/down and left/right. And that goes for the high beams(or whatever you guys call it), as well.
We have a cut off line. So the beam is only half of the lense. And the auto leveler works together with the cut off line, to not blind peeps. But the flaw about it, is that if your going over a hill. The cars below will be blinded for a sec. And if you go down a bumpy road, it will bounce the light. So I get Beamed, because they think Im flashing my Beams. I flash back, then they respect me more. Probably because all they see is a white spot :lol:
We have lifted up 4x4's with 6-8000k HID bulbs :x :x :x

JDM headligths on the other hand, are not adjustable left/right. So when I put them on, it will shine in on coming vehicles.
