Then do it yourself. Oh, what's that? You're scared it won't turn out as good? You gotta pay to play.

No he doesn't have too... He can get someone else to do the same job for cheaper and a much faster turn around time.

I agree, but........

Keep in mine your headlights cost $1000 a piece if you slip up and have to get a new one. Thats what stops most people from DIY on this.

I'd DIY mine, I'm only painting the housing, no LED's. It's just taking the light apart and the resealing process I'm not confortable with.

Wow Jonnie who the hell are you? 3 posts and they are all on how expensive it is to mod headlights besides doing it yourself. Honestly, you have not been in this industry very long!!! This is cheap compared to companies like clear corners where it costs close to $1k per light to be customized. Again, I encourage you like others to DIY if you want to. However, if you want to have a professional job done on your headlights that are show worthy with complicated designs then go with a company like 180 Custom. You are paying for convenience, reliability, liability (if they mess up they foot the bill) and fully custom designs. You want to know where the whole LEDs around the headlight came from on the 370z... well it was me!!!! I designed it and worked with 180 to build it. If you see it from another company or DIY person its because I was a pioneer and not having the time to do it myself I hired 180 to do it! Get a grip NEWB and stop Trolling!

If it takes like 4 months and counting to replace a LED. There's a problem.

HAHAHA he wants me to go to a retirement home LMAO! this coming from Unique Autosports hahaha what a Joke!!! seriously dude you have know clue who you talk to. Yea I am a pioneer and I work with companies in this industry to break boundries and to further our market. I do a lot for this community as far as pioneering as well as getting us new products and discounts for all our members. Maybe you can look up some of my threads.

Seriously, If you dont have anything positive to add to our community then GO HOME or go install a JL sub in some basketball player's Cadillac!

It is disrespectful to randomly come into a forum and thread and start sh!t. Maybe you need to earn a rep here before you start stating your opinion. honestly, I dont even think you work for UA and I bet you wouldnt even give us the time and day to prove it. I challenge you to take a pic in your UA shirt with ur user name on a piece of paper while at work.... I highly doubt you will do it and it goes to even further prove your a TROLL!

Looks like ol' Jonnie got some of his posts pulled. Let's be serious here. If you don't agree with the prices of something you can politely state that IN YOUR OPINION it's not worth the cost. There's a right way and a wrong way to do things.

Bullitt:
simple statistical mathematics
Out of 15,659 members on this forum we are bound to have some crazy ones. There has to be some chemically embalanced folks here for sure, we could even find some statistics and find an aproximate number of mentally troubled people on this site. This might be interesting......And I wonder if this guy falls into this category??
huummmm....Wonder how many of these fruits and nuts are from Cali...J/J
Just a thought
