    If you were after a set of these black altezza lights for VY

    How much would you be willing to pay?

    Well, they look a heap better than the chrome ones. I guess the going price is about the same. $150 the pair?

    I wouldn't want them, but I think they look better than the standard VY Exec lights.

    In that case, they are overpriced. I purchased genuine VZ Calais lights for less than that brand new from my local Holden dealer.

    but what if you really really wanted a set and theres only one place that sells them?

    would you part with the money to get what you wanted

    Couple of issues here.

    One - no matter how much I wanted them, the price is way over the top.
    Two - who's the "sole trader"? Carsrus sell these things for way less than that and they are a forum sponsor. Have you consulted them?

    Definately not my cup of tea, but if I was in the market for them I'd probably pay around $150-200, same as all the other altezza tail lights. If only one place had them and was charging a rip off price, I'd buy a different set.
