Head lamp lighting bolt r35 - conversion

Evening,

It's been a little while since I've been on here, and its still a great forum for sharing information and networking. After 4 years my Angel Eye conversion, is starting to become a tad reliable, in terms of connection and fitment. I've decided to go for the GT-R R35 Lightning Bolt 2015 Headlight. They are about and I'm seeking where I could purchase these, they seem to range from £1400-£2500 without fitting. Any ideas of purchasing these items, and if purchasing OEM versions from the US, are to be avoided.

Many thanks,

Spiceykam

Well, I am not an expert on the R35 Nissan GT-R's but I have seen many Folks over time fall fowl of buying cheaper brand new headlights (Mk3 Golf as a good example) from places like the USA or Canada only to have their vehicle then cause issues for an MOT because the item they have bought is for a LHD vehicle and cannot really be altered properly to suit their Own RHD European version of this brand/make of car!

That's a good price if true, thought they were £3k?

Surely that price is in Japan which means at least shipping, import duty and vat.

If not, I'd take a set now.

At £1450 I would too.
The cheapest I've seen them for here in the UK are from Kream Development at circa £2k

matty32 please do confirm price because if that is genuinely your price for these then I could well be interested! As TABZ said, the cheapest I've been quoted thus far is just under £2k from KREAM too.

Probably worth contacting Kash at Kream as I'm sure he ran a group buy previously and is generally very helpful over on the B35.

I'm assuming Matty's lack of response means his price doesn't include shipping, tax etc

Assuming they come from Japan, can you confirm they are UK compatible without modification.

A check of the part numbers against Nissan GB parts might reveal a common part number between japan and the UK, or not as the case may be.

Karl installed a UK set into a my11 and stock had an 6 port connector whereas the my14 had an 8 port connection, some modification was obviously required
