These lights are at least $600 with shipping. Does anybody know where I can find a vendor selling them for less? I'll even take a pair of used ones. All I ask is they have to be real MORETTE lights.

Damn $3,150!? I think they raised the price on that. IIRC, it used to be 2 thousand something (which is already ridiculous enough).

yea, i do remember seeing it as, "damn, this is expensive as fuck, but i can still afford it." now, it's just simple, not affordable.

Dude thats crazy.

They look like those cheapo twin beam headlights from ebay that sell for like 200 bucks too except for the corner light.
agreed. I'd really like to see a better picture of those Sti lights painted. The thing i hate about morettes and replica morettes is the stock/clear corners always look way out of place.

Somone painted their corner BRP to match the morettes and the rest of the car. It looked pretty good. But for some reason I couldn't find it through searching..

Well,After seeing that Sti light I went ahead and ordered the cheap APC ones for my car.I will just mold the corner into the l;ight with somefiberglass sand iit down and paint them flat black and leave a small sliver at the bottom for the corner light to shine thru.

I love custom stuff.

those things are made by apc?

did not know

why can't i find them anywhere

they used to be all over ebay

i think that the knockoffs look better than the genuine article...

and i believe you're talking about me w/ the corners painted...

it was a Photochop to see what it would look like

i have a spare set of corners waiting to be painted when i get the knockoffs if i can find them for a decent price

and they were goin for like 120 on ebay...

No, someone really did it. They did the DIY corner mod and painted around that little square part so light still goes through there. It was like a 3 page thread too, I don't know why I can't find it...

NomadTW : Yeah,The ebay ones were a big craze because it was the ones that APC had set out as their market test ones to see if they would sell.Now that they are a standard production i5tem it will be hard to find them on ebay.

I plan on using the stock corners and making the little square clear and use amber bulbs.What sucks is that I dont have any stock corners anymore,Just the OEM clear corners.If anyone wants to partial trade with me for their stockers and some cash I'd be willing to deal.;)
