Question Where to buy ?

What is the best place to buy red-clear tail lights ?
procarparts or autodynamic ?

I've heard they sell china made lights. Can I get real JDM produced ?

Those two places you listed above have them for a bit cheaper than other sources, and yes, they're the made in China ones.

You could get JDM ones through many different Japanese companies (i.e. JP, Cross Road, Anceltion, Hilltop, etc.), but it'll cost you at least double to almost 8 times the price.

Haha, the JP ones probably have about 5-6 times better quality...the rest are in the name and prestige of the company.

You're right. I'm actually ready to pay big $$$ for real JDM lights but not more then $600 US pair
Another question how can I get ones ? I need rear red/clear, front and side blinkers.

Need some help from Japan

I'm in Australia - do you think they can help me ?

Probably Robert is the only person who can help me. I am going to be in Tokyo end of June and I just need someone to show me where can I buy those parts.

The autodynamic lights will suit your needs and hold up very well.

Without fine tuning ? I remember your post after you installed these lights. You mentioned some minor problems.

Can please you post close photo of your lights ? to see how they fit.

If you mean crystal clear like the Hilltop conversion, then no. It's either Hilltop or DIY. And I don't think they would look good unless you did the same to the headlights to match.

I said that I fine tuned them to fit better before I installed them, I have not had any problems after installation.
