Quoted from sd_tom:
Eh, thats what an extra $150? Incandescents are cheap and since I dont leave machine on for hours the other benefits (heat, energy) carry less weight. If the price was half (say $75) I might think differently
I can't argue with that. If you like the look of incandescents, there's not a good reason to spend a bunch of money to put LEDs in a game. I'd love to be able to sell them for $75, but they cost me more than that to make, and that doesn't count the time it takes to assemble the cables, test the boards, support end users, PayPal fees, income tax, etc.
IMHO, properly done LEDs can make a bigger impact than other mods like toppers, mirror blades, etc., and I'm willing to spend more money on top of LEDs to make them look good. If something like LED OCD existed when I started putting LEDs in my games, I would have bought it rather than designing it.
Quoted from someoneelse:
Yeah, thanks for reminding me...
They do not sell to Germany! ... We've mailed, but at least for the time being (which has been a veeeery long stretch already) there is no distributer in Europe, or any way of ordering directly from the States for that matter.
It's aggravating to me as well. If it was as simple as shipping and customs, I'd be happy to sell them directly. Sadly, if I didn't do it right, I could end up losing my day job (that pays the bills). I've talked with a couple of US resellers that are able to ship internationally, but they've all fallen through.
