Lights

I found this package for sale for a little over $1k delivered. The guy claims that these are genuine Porsche replacements brand new in the boxes. Seems like a decent price for the whole package. Any comments?

Those are just clear headlights... for $1k might as well upgrade to litronics instead.

If you want brand new litronics your going to pay close to $2000.

The Litronic headlights alone would be more than double what the guy is asking for the whole package. It's not like I can get Litronics for an extra $300.

I am more interested in removing the amber than I am in improving my night vision.

I bought the same configuration of lights with the head lights being lightronics and the whole package if I remember correctly was around 1400.00 all factory porsche parts. I got them from departstop a few years ago.

I haven't seen litronics that cheap. Perhaps that is why departstop is out of business?

If you find another package priced like that let me know.

Litronic lights were that cheap until somtime early to mid-2008 when prices skyrocketed. Some said it was due to currency exchange rates marks vs dollars...
