    Are they like the LED conversions I've seen on Ebay? I don't think those look very nice :( Or does Sean do something different?

    I just got off the phone with Global. They quoted $3420 plus tax plus shipping and insurance. So ~$8000 for a set of BMW Z8 taillights.....more expensive than the $300,000 car featuring incredibly...
  3. I just got off the phone with Global and they...

    I just got off the phone with Global and they just quoted me a price of $3420 for each light, not including tax and not including shipping/insurance.

    No matter how you slice it, it is ridiculous...
  4. CURRENT PRICE FOR Z8 TAILLIGHT: $4,919.66 ($4,492.80 not including tax)

    Despite the dollar being at historic highs to the Euro, the price for one Z8 taillight is now $4,492.80 plus tax. With tax that's nearly $10,000 to replace the two rear lights, not including labor!
  5. Sorry Mate, I think you are incorrect on both...

    Sorry Mate, I think you are incorrect on both counts: First, the article states "A set" of taillights. That to me indicates they are stating if you have to replace the set, i.e., both taillight...
  6. Funny! Talk about expensive Cadillac taillights in $300k car yet BMW Z8 even worse.

    I saw this article today and immediately thought about the Z8 taillight expense which actually exceeds these costs.

    And for the expense you get some really sophisticated tech seemingly...

    Their inner true self now reflected in their "butt ugly" exterior appearance. Who on earth would by a BMW with that new hideous grill. Makes a Pontiac Aztec look good by comparison :rotflmao:

    I know what you mean! Frankly, my SL600 was probably the best built car I've owned in terms of over engineering. The R230 put all similar era BMWs to shame.

    Definitely an interesting combination, red with blue. Tricky to get the shades right but when right its a great combination. But I am biased :)

    Yes and no. The CTEK I believe is also a battery restorer and as such it works differently as the Li does not need this restorative process. I'm working on sourcing a good trickle charger

    The Z8 battery, I'd guess is probably more like 60-65 pounds.
