Hey guys..got a question..nismoparts.com sells the 180sx tails, but they sell a package with L&R the center panel and a lower panel as well. my question is do I need the center and lower panels. All I want is the lights themselves since I am painting the center panel body color. Tell whats involved with them as well. thanks for the info

p.s. I hope to purchase my first 240sx tommorow!!! I will let you guys know if I do

Yes you need the center and bottom piece for a perfect fit. If you look closely at the JDM lights, they "curve" on the edges a bit.

Its possible to do it without the bottom piece, but if you want it to look good, get it all.

Good luck on getting the 240!

Last I heard, Nissan Motorsports was sold out of the tailights a month ago.

so, they took the money out of your account without shipping ?!!! hmmmm.

Has anyone even attempted to get in contact with someone at nismoparts? I've called several times and no one is there. I know Cameron picked up a set of 180SX lights, but I'm wondering whats their current situation.

As far as I know, Nissan Motorsports is still out of stock.

I Live in Raleigh, NC. How far away are you two guys? By the way, erebuni240sx, is your name Bryan?

I spoke directly to Scott once, and he wasn't willing to deal with me as a shop..(meaning discounting so that I can re-sell items)

He told me that they have one price, and that's it.

I find Motorsports distributors VERY funny shops to deal with.

... i've called Nismoparts.com before and ordered from them w/ no problem... they are also http://www.nissanparts.cc . ask for Scott Williams, he's the internet parts manager. last i heard was that Nissan Motorsports was out of the 180 tails... and replying to the original question... yes you definitely need the CENTER panel as the curve of the 240 light is opposite of the 180 light... but it is possible to install the lights w/o getting a new LOWER panel, some have done it, but it does look kinda funny... i would just go ahead and get the whole kit as you may want it eventually and might not be able to get the parts later on...

I was able to talk to them on the phone. Their e-mail I did not actually receive. So I think its better to just call in the afternoon west coast time. They were very nice on the phone. Good luck.

I sent them an email 2 or 3 months ago and they never replied. I don't get a good feeling from them at all.
