    I was looking at EDM HIDs, and yea they were $1300 on the only site I found them for sale. I just tried looking it up again but for some reason google isn't being friendly to me and not loading all the way. $700 is still a lot but you gotta pay for quality so I guess people are willing to take the damage. Im doing the Koji's this weekend when Im finally off work, 6 days of 7-10 hour shifts and 5 days of 1-3 hour classes are killing me.

    Edit: I actually was looking at a set of JDMs not EDMs... Look at this crap.http://www.evasivemotorsports.com/Me...&Store_Code=EM

    There are no EDM HIDs.

    That site is a rip off.

    Yeah I thought after you said something they were EDMs but after google finally starting loading all the way on my phone I found out they were JDM. Best looking bugeyes Ive found on the web so far are all stock ones that were modified, kinda funny.

    That would probably be a good idea, they are really cheap there like buying USDM bugeye lights here.

    Somehow I doubt it.. we always get the crap over here, but who knows, they might be thinking the same thing. You could probably sell an old pair of 1980s Levi's for $500 over there.

    Supply and demand. There is a low supply and a high demand. That drives the prices up.
