I want to bring the JGTC type headlight modifications to USA. They are available with HID, and normal bulbs. How many would be interested and how much would you pay for it? Please be realistic on the pricing.
keep in mind that the Marga Hills headlight mod is about $1300 without the actually lights, just the housings.

Would these have the beam pattern designed for places with right-hand-drive cars, or would they be re-designed to be used in the States?

I would be very interested in them if they were of high quality, esp. HID. I would pay around $1K for them. Personally, I thiink the Marga Hills lights are over priced for just a headlight kit.

I'm still communicating with the people that makes them in Japan. Their retail price in Japan is set to be $1900 for HID version and $1400 for normal bulb version. I think that is not too expensive, but of course us USAers demand a cheaper price than that. Some of the issues I want to clear before importing them are the ones you've mentioned such as beam patten, and adjustability. The housing is made of carbon fiber and lexan glass cover.
I think if I can get about 5 units ordered, the price would be good for us. BTW, we can also get just the housing itself, since the HID light they use is made by Raybrig, the same exact one used on the JGTC NSX, also availabel from every Raybrig dealer. thus, I assume they can be adjusted to fit US beam patterns.
