Never seen these before. I know there is the matte black and black chrome but not polished ones.

Don't read Japanese but since they're HID they have to be a variant of the OEM JDM's. Presumably RHD.

If you want replacement lights. Spec D makes a great selection of lights. If you want just newer OEM. I have a set of used ones in great condition. Selling for a great price. I would hesitate to buy for Japan unless you're comfortable with the language.

I believe those are still considered the black chrome JDM headlights. Yes they're RHD and you either need to retrofit new projectors or buy the LHD shield and swap them. It's been years since I dealt with these but I remember there being different shades of black chrome, these shiny ones and the more true black chrome. Both had HID and the leveling motor should be the small 6 pin connector.

You can find pairs on ebay. I bought black chrome ones in decent shape for less than what people were selling them here in the states. That was shipped from Japan too.

As stated before they look the be the jdm ones, all you'd need to put them in is a harness that can be bought from https://www.lightwerkz.net/ and enjoy them. My buddies has them and says its one of the best unplanned upgrades he's got.

First, Yahoo Japan is quite good. There are services like Buyee that bids for you and will ship outside of Japan. You pay a 10% commission fee plus shipping cost.

Many sellers in Japan does not ship outside of Japan as it's not only a hassle but with the Japan Post regulations just sucks.

I wouldn't hesitate to buy anything from Japan. Japan is one of the country that is quite honest. What country where you forgot your iPad on the bus and you actually get it back.
