Here's a good example, we picked up a 2013 Hyundai Elantra for my wife about a month ago... since that "new" body style actually began in 2011, they already started making Projector/LED Headlamps for them... for a LOT less than $4000 a pair..... take the below examples:

Even good old Sentra/200SX get the love!!! (LOL)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-1999-NI...&forceRpt=true

Personally, I've been thinking about snatching that Morimoto H1 kit and retrofit it into my current housings; but I also don't wanna find out a week later that "Ebay" started selling those factory made ones for $550 -
Yea, though in my cars case the Euro and Korean versions of the projector/led assemblies are available anywhere from 350-550 for both and these aren't even 3rd party but oem assemblies. 3rd party ones make everything LED/HID and even those stay aroun 700-900.

It's ridiculous how some cars get support like mad out the gate and others lag on certain areas.

And I'm positive there are a lot more Focii then there are Velosters anyways on the market to begin with.

From what market? The cutoffs will be different if they are from a right hand drive country.

Are you serious? Are we talking about plain Euro reflectors or the projectors? I'd be all over this! You should start a separate thread/group-buy - I'm sure you'd get high interest for these!!

it also depends. On my shiiping quote, it may be 200 a set, but still cheaper then any othersn they are the plain black euro, the projector/HID are not available yet

I, along with everyone else here, invoke the pics or GTFO rule.
