Wow, Expensive!


I didn't know these lights were so damn expensive! I'd have a turbo before I had these, I emailed Brashboy They had this to say:

Celicatastrophe: Do you sell the headlights that you have shown on your blue celica?

Chiba(Brashboy): Hello, These goods were sold more than TRD. It is order production at present, and a time limit of delivery takes about two months. I can do a price of about 3000 dollars, too.Confirm detailed conditions if it is purchase hope.
Thank you!

Celicatastrophe: 3000 Dollars? Wow thats pretty high, What if I get a group buy of say 20 then what could you bring it down to?

Chiba: It is getting large because it is order production by TRD.Give me time a little because it tries to bargain about the price.
Thanks!

Celicatastrophe: Thanks Man!

I don't get what that price is all about? What the hell are they made of? For the price it better come with a hid set up, and about 1000 dollars worth of other extras because nothing can justify that price.

I believe Tater sells a set of his lights for $1800, Vatik is also making some but I dont think he is done yet and they will be around the 5-700 dollar range.

I hope TYC comes out with something nice looking for the Celica. The stock Celica headlight is better looking than any of their offerings for Hondas thus far. Something that is paintable with the look of the DP headlight would be great. Im sick of building my dual-projector units, as they require too much time to craft and the price surely keeps them rare.

its not as if its some complex assembly! Its a mold that can be mass produced. And it looks as though you use the guts from the old light or for that price it comes with all new lights. I hear they come with a free platinum chain.

When I first read this I thought you were smoking crack or something."not complex"? I think there may be some confusion as to the types of Celica lights that I make.
The $1800 headlights as seen in my sig are complete dual projector assemblies that are time consuming and costly to craft. Link to DP headlights
The light that I believe you are thinking of has an inset that is installed in the stock headlight unit.These inserts go for $275 for the pair and are more practical for a daily driver as the projectors are protected from rock damage. Link to headlight insert

Yea I smoke crack then i go and buy 3000 dollar headlights. The price of yours seem more reasonable though, no doubt.

tater, all i can say is that your headlights look awesome! They look absolutely insane on black cars and i reckon would look great on darker color cars but wont look as good on lighter colord cars. like i was thinking of how they would look on a silver car and..hmm.. no way as nice as it would on black. my 2c
