I got mine for roughly $600 after tax and shipping. I was lucky and found it in the same state as me. Also the guy is using greyhound so it's cheaper. I'll be waiting, I'm guessing 1-2 weeks? Haven't got my tracking number yet. If you want a set Mahlar95 is actually selling his for a good price. http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=89322

Ahh okay. That's nice that you could get them relatively locally. Much less worry with damage / loss in transit.

Thanks for the heads up, but since I'm down in Australia and there are practically none here, it was easiest for me to order directly form Japan. I paid for them about 3 weeks ago, but to make shipping reasonable it is going via sea freight, and will take '4-6 weeks'. That means you could still get your before me! mad.gif

Don't worry, you'll all know as soon as they arrive tongue.gif

Haha, well sorry to thread-jack but for my stuff (full set projector headlights + power folding wing mirrors and relay) it was 8450 yen for sea mail ($83.20) or 19800 yen for EMS express ($195)... So a pretty decent difference tongue.gif Unfortunately though most shops in Japan will only ship EMS... So you need somebody private to actually help save you the money tongue.gif

Now back to 'Silly97... tongue.gif

Lol. Thanks bro. I'm building my car to impress myself more than to others. Trying to get all the JDM goodies before they become even more rare. I'm planning on keeping my Silly97 forever. I always tell my friends and family that she's going to be my old man classic car. :')

I agree with this completely... Even when I get a new car I want to keep my celica roadworthy and running (y)

If I was asked to trade mine for a st205. I don't think I would. Reason is, is because I put too much love into my st204 already. No one can replace her. smile.gif

I know the one you're talking about... But that is an astronomical asking price... Not a selling price. They commonly get advertised around the $20-22k mark and sit for quite a while (some I have seen there from at least 6 months ago at that price). The only one I have seen in person was a completely original minter that sold for $18k after sitting for a while around the 20 mark. A personal import model sold 2 weeks ago for under $12k (albeit quickly). So they aren't cheap, but they aren't that ridiculous tongue.gif Better value than a full 3S-GTE swap here IMHO.

In any case, we're thread jacking again.... tongue.gif

H1 HiD bulbs came in and as expected. Tested it and they are plug and play with my 9006 ballast. Also going to down my lighting from 8k to 5k. The 8k wasn't really visible at night especially in the rain at night. Can barely even see the painted lane marks.

Now just waiting on my projectors to come in so I can get started on fitting the H1 bulbs into the lo beam housing and find a way to get my accent lights working. At least my accent lights are coming with the sockets but I don't know if the bulbs are going to be in there.
