R34 Head lights Why so expensive.

Recommended Posts

I have Just purchased an R34 that needs a Right hand head light.

A pair of head lights are more expensive than I paid for the car . 

I have a few questions is Why are they expensive and secondly has anybody ever looked at finding an alternative from another manufacture.

Just anything that will fit in the hole. A new mounting brackets could be fabricated to accommodate an alternative. 

if it was possible it could save owners a lot of money a force the prices down.

Production stopped 17 years ago, stop stamping your feet, and revisit your decision to buy an incomplete car. A $200 part that sits on the shelf for 17 years owes at least $700 plus rarity factor.

Write an angry letter to Nissan, tell them you will take your business of buying run down second hand cars elsewhere.

That will teach em.

Stop stamping your feet' look on gumtree there is one for swap for supra bonnet and a supra bonnet is worth about $300. Remove bum beanie and start looking harder to solve your problem.

Are you going to show us how to fit a different headlight into an r34? Whole assembly or just internals? I want to make sure my expectations are set correctly

Rarity, especially the Xenon ones. Plus if you haven't noticed, the GT-Rs have gone up in price so all the relevant parts have increased in price now.

I used to regularly see projector R32 headlights go for ~$250 on Yahoo auctions Japan, now they go for $800 each apparently lol

did like you advised.  Got the head light from Yahoo Japan 260 Au plus shipping. You needed to dig deep but good priced one can still be found.

Nice work. I've found that the sellers are quite honest with the condition of the items, so you should get what you saw in the pictures.
