Think they are cool for the price tag?

So I was looking at a pair of black housing 1 Piece headlights and these really stood out! I really like the Amber turn signal but here is the deal they are kinda pricey! So I'm in a pickle! :hmmmm:


They are EDM and Cost $200 for both!


So I want some input! Should I:

Get them?
or should I buy a cheaper pair of JDM headlights that have the white turn signals and attempt to melt the glue take off the glass and attempt to paint the corners amber?

I have found other JDM's very similar to this just with clear turn signals for $100 dollars, which is half the price!



(if anyone has front lower amber turn signals for a 4th gen I would like to buy some)

Re: Think they are cool for the price tag?

What colour's your car 408? the amber corners look great on black (as evidenced by Ludenight95's car) but don't suit every colour.

Also if they're EDM then the cutoff for the light beam might be on the wrong side, so chech that out as well.

Re: Think they are cool for the price tag?

@Brash: my car is black =]

@chicago: I hope you are right and those are not EDM because I don't want any problems like Brash said above, but the site says they are.

it refers to them as JDM and then says this LITERALLY 2 lines later:

"provides the satisfaction of having the latest Euro look on your car"

and to get to them you have to hit the Lighting tab and then go into the "Euro Headlight" section so. idk!

Re: Think they are cool for the price tag?

Do it do it do it.

Just like brash said, ludeknight has them and they are beautiful. I would without a doubt buy them if I had the extra cash.

and I believe they were referring to a euro style. Not EDM per say. and what website is this?

EDM is 2 piece.

Re: Think they are cool for the price tag?

I've looked at these too, but for $200 you might as well get the jdm ones and just put amber bulbs in the corners.
