Smoked Inspire Headlights Complete Plug N Play

SOLD

Up for sale is my set of Smoked Inspire Headlights for a 7th gen. They are in great overall condition with no known problems and were just removed from my car last week. This is a complete plug n play set with the following:

Smoked Inspire Headlights
Phillips 85122+ Bulbs
Matsu Gen 3 Ballasts
V-Leds Parking Lights
Amber Turn Signal Bulbs
Hoen Xenon Match High Beams
Full Plug N Play Harness
S2000 Bulb Covers.

Below are the current pictures.









The Drivers side has a bit of a smudge in the middle of the lens but does not effect anything.

I am asking $1200 shipped and insured via UPS ground to the lower 48 states. If you are outside of that I will have to get a shipping price but I will try to work with you. I accept PayPal which I prefer for your protection and mine but i will also accept USPS money orders.

I am only selling because i am selling my car and will be parting out some things like the headlights and the stereo system which will include a OEM double din kit and a custom molded single 10" woofer box.

Below are some pictures when I installed them as well as pictures of the beam pattern.






















Please feel free to ask me any questions via PM here or email at [email protected]

I can respond to emails quicker.

No I lost interest in trying to do it. I still have the diagrams on how to wire them up.

Take it to the pawn shop, then come back and give us the true street value. Im interested in what they will tell you, give us the complete story. I have an offer to make but boy-o-boy not near that asking price at all. I have met LiquidXplosion (had a set that isn't for sale) before, and I do not mean to offend or be a douche at all.

Since there seems to be concern about my asking price judging by a couple of posts I thought I would give a breakdown of what it would cost to replicate these lights.

If you can find someone to import them for you you can get a nice Used set of smoked inspires for about $800

A Used pair of matsu ballasts will run you abput $150

A Used pair of Phillips 85122+ bulbs about $80

Now the fun part. IF you know exactly what bulb sockets you need and which bulbs you can build the harnesses (if you have the ability) for about $50. Maybe. This does not include the time it takes researching the correct parts and finding the best deals on said parts.

Oh yeah don't forget the hi beam bulbs. Used xenon color 9005 bulbs $10-$20.

Now we still need parking light bulbs $10,turn signal bulbs $10 and the d2s bulb covers $30.

So were sitting at $1150 without any shipping. Proper shipping packaged in 2 separate boxes with proper packing and insurance will be about $100-$150 total so now were at $1250-$1300.

This also takes into consideration that the buyer does not have to wait 3-6 months to import (which is the normal time) nor does he have to spend any time researching, asking questions, starting threads or anything else that will take time to figure out how to install these or what is the part # to the parking light socket etc...

So all things considered I feel $1200 is a Fair ASKING price for a fairly rare set of nice headlights.

I understand your point^ 100%
But also take into consideration that car parts don't always have the best resell value.
These look awesome though. Considering it is all PnP. That output is amazing man.
$1200 is a bit high.. With all that said I would think around $1000..
Because I've seen inspires on here sell for $550-$750 at most here.

I support the seller. Being someone who has a set of retros and Inspires. I love the inspires way more and have sold all my retro sets. (TSX, FXR, Morimoto)

The inspires cost about 800 if you can get them through personal means. Boomplus, Kingmotor, etc have them for 900+sh and fees. OEM parts (bulbs, ballasts, plugs, HID covers) are about 200-300 alone. I personally charge 150 for the signal wiring kit.

Hopefully these go to a good home.

All good points which is why I emphasize it is an Asking price.

I'm in no hurry to sell and also may sell them with my car when I sell it.

The output is definitely nice. Much better than my e46 M3 that I just got rid of.

we all have our opinion on this regarding the price. only time will tell on how bad somone wants this set and how not so in a hurry the seller wants to get rid of his lights. price will determine how fast or slow these lights will sell.

i have a set in chrome and love 'em and i said i will never get one coz of the price. but i got mine for a lot cheaper than $1200. gl w/ the sale.

to the OP, only your city light are on when you switch to park light? the signals don't double as park?

I personally like inspire headlight, but I don't know if there's anyone who's very very inspired to spend 1200 for used inspired headlights. Just my opinion.

These are still available and price is flexible.

Does anyone know the cheapest shipping method to Australia? The quotes I am getting are crazy.


SALE PENDING!
