to clear up some confusion:
IsR> From Chris's picture, pretty sure its just the parking light on
Yes, the pics of Chris's NSX are just the parking lights (low beams are not lit).
Oyagi> I replaced my cdn dtrls with jdm aftermarket ones last year. A lot of people have complimented me on them saying they're very audi-like
PIAA denso, I forwarded some pics of a Supra we built lights for that had those lights. I am not a fan of PIAA products and have no comment in terms of quality, but they look decent. Fairly pricey for a mass produced LED bar though. PIAA tends to make a killing selling cheap stuff for bucko bucks. Their bulbs are rubbish.
nsxtacey> ok got a reply, they said the audi's LED are very intense for day time funning lights.
The Audi lights are designed to function as daytime running lights, they are very bright and clearly visible. They use very high power LEDs.
There have been threads all over the internet lately of people wanting to incorporate this into their: [insert car here]. Much like Altezza lights, its yet another trend that people are looking to exploit.
We have no interest in going that route. The only suggestion I had is that we can research using a full-length strip of curved white LEDs, as opposed to the stock design which illuminates the outer parking light chambers.
enkrypt3d> Its not just the parking lights that they make clear... notice the ring of tiny leds around each lens.. the OEM light does not have that.
They are about $1800 for both done... you have to send them in and they'll send them back.
Ismail knows, the NSX-R headlights on our site were built for him.
The above picture is of his own recently converted headlight.
osirisx11> But, the combo-light's faceted-lens will make the light look cloudy that is produced by the LED light-bar. And that principally defeats the purpose of your efforts: to get the LED-type linear array shining through the combo-light!
Correct, people always want to take something specifically designed for one car and transplant it into another. It doesnt work like that. The audi lamps have been specifically engineered to work in that headlight assembly. Its not a matter of pulling from one and slapping into another. For those who care about building a quality product, it takes mucho R&D to create a quality fabrication.
As I said earlier, we have no intention of taking audi's design and implementing or replicating it on the NSX. There's nothing classy or noteworthy in doing so.
excfive> You have to send them your lights and it still costs $1800.00!!! Feck that! It looks cool as all hell IMO but that is a lot of scratch for sure. It is really nice looking but there is no way I could do it...I would have buyers remorse unending! $4-$500 yea....but $1800!!!
Being that we're not paying sponsors here, I dont want to get into discussing pricing and what not. But the prices are listed clear as day on our site, and the 2nd-gen NSX headlights are not listed at 1800, they're $1680.
Much like all things you purchase for your NSX, its all relative. Some people buy sportmax, others buy volk. Theres a huge price difference, obviously. Personally, I wouldnt be cought dead owning a Rota or Sportmax wheel - its all replicated garbage.
