Okay, i know SOMEBODY on here had to snag these suckers, they sure looked minty fresh!!!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Roadster-Hayashi-Mazda-Miata-tail-lights-JDM-RARE_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33716QQihZ017QQitemZ270053814618QQrdZ1

Come out come out whomever you are!!! FESS UP!!!

anyhow, I must say that is a GREAT PRICE they sold for, as i bought mine new from KG-Works back in 1999 (when KG was a Hayashi Dealer) and they set me back $625, plus $75 for EMS shipping from Japan, and another $150 to get painted, ouch! Oh and import duty tax bill a month later!! #-o

So whoever got these stole them!!! =D>

Did he get those from Larry Kyosai's old Red GReddy Turbo'd Miata aka (UltraMiata)? Or did he buy this set on his own, cause for a long time me and Larry were the only two people in the US with those tail lights, they are super clean looking. I think the actual lights are from a Skyline R32, because i remember the lens saying Nissan.

Still cant believe they sold that cheap!

ah damn!! forgot bro!! so that makes 3 sets in the USA, man.......... anyhow, did anyone on this forum even bid on it? at the last day it was only at $157, so i guess the last few minutes was a bid war.

not forgetting that Barchetta is producing a limited ( 25 sets ) run with the full permission of Hayashi :D

a little more expensive than the set on ebay but definately still in production !!!

I am considering selling on my unfitted zoom units and adding myself to the list :roll:

Thanks for starting this thread Phat.

I just paid for the lights a little bit earlier.
I am surprised I won them since I had bid below the reserve. :shock:

Anyone know of a good place to put a reverse light? The lights come with a harness to attach one.
I was thinking of doing a custom GV style revese light, but would be interested in suggestions, or looks at what others have done.

I am not planning on relocating my exhaust from the stock location though.

Just mount a rectangular backup light on the opposite corner no? Get one from the auto parts store?

glad to help anytime.

for the reverses, buy some super bright LED license plate bolts and use them as reverses... OR... custom the reverse into the 3rd brake light area.

I have mine on for over 5 years and i never had a problem with no reserve lights. But the License plate LED bolts sounds like a good idea.
