WTF. Has anyone else noticed the steady increase in the price of parts. I was looking at the 180sx type x tails, and I can't find them for under $475. I can remeber when you could pick those things up for a bit over $350. Everything is getting sooo inflated in price. My car is going to take 895,654 years to get finished and I didn't want to keep it that long. What are all of your thoughts. And if you see a good deal on a popular item post a link so all of us other 240 owners can get a good score.

i bought mine for like 450 shipped in 2001.....i've never seen them BRAND NEW for less than that.....ever. go buy altezzas, you can get those for like a hundred. in that purchase price you also get bad taste and ridicule. glad i have another complete set that i plan on probably destroying as i cut them in half to make LED panels for. LOLZ DEAL WITH IT.

but yeah....wtf is up with silvia headlights? 400 for fucking non projectors(bricks for you fanboy faggots)? i paid 150 for my first pair.....used to be able to buy projectors for like a hundo and triple projectors were like 200 and the most sought after. i used to have two pairs of non projectors, 2 pairs of dual projectors and a pair of triples....wish i still had them things. all of them were fucking perfect since i hand picked them out.

I remember Z1motorsports selling them for 369 for the whole set about 4-5 years ago. The old thread for them may even be on NICO still. And Frsport had tem for like 395 ith free shipping 1.5 years ago, now the want almost 700 for them. Even parts that I already have blow my mind how much more they are now that when I bought them 3,4,5 years ago. Nismo motor mounts 159 for whole st now they are lik 240 for the whole set.

This is why I have a Japanland parts thread. No one seemed to care to much, so deal with it.

I have a friend, he goes to JDM TYTE-land sometimes for business, he has free time to scour junkyards, he gets a discounted shipping rate through his company. Does this cover it?

That may be a little big and tricky, but we'll see.
