As title states:
Looking to buy Hatchback Valenti Revo Jewel LED tail lights for my '13 hatch. These have been discontinued but want to see if anyone has a set laying around or ready to be sold. Looking to get the all clear version but will settle for the red/clear V2's as well. Don't want smoked. I have already contacted Valenti Japan and they have no plans of re selling them.

Thanks

They recently resold them after a guy on NASIOC contacted them on FB I believe. RallySport Direct had them too and sold the last set for a ridiculous price like $180 or something. Might want to check that out:

I got you in the P.M's but just so everyone else can see.
If you don't have any luck with Valenti, Spyder makes a set that only comes in clear or tinted.
I've seen them in person and they look pretty sharp, so if you aren't really looking to grab the red ones, then these might be your best option.
As far as I know, that last batch of Valenti's that they found in their warehouse were the red ones, so your only real chance at picking them up in clear would be second hand.
I got the third-last set they had found and I purchased about 6-7 months ago.
Here are the spyders that are, as far as I know, still widely available:

I've seen that post on NASIOC.. also made a post on facebook looking for the Valenti's in the 08-14 group. Seems like everyone wants a set. Not a fan of the Spyders. They look too aftermarket for me. The Valenti's have that OEM touch.

Sorry to keep everyone waiting! We've been eager to make our products available to you car lovers in America! Up until now, we have had a handful of customers like Speed Industry and Rallysport Direct in the US, but we've had no official consumer retail outlet for Valenti products in the states. We're happy to change that!

We've put together a website for a selection of our products we're ready to ship direct from Japan to the US, Canada and Mexico, please check out ValentiUSA.com

Right now we just have a handful of items available, and unfortunately the Revo for STi is at the end of life. If you have any special requests please use the contact form on the site or send us a message and we'll try to get you what you need!

We're just getting started, so we appreciate all feedback you may have for the site, and any ideas for how we can be of service. Sorry for dropping in like this and posting links on our first post, but you did ask!

REVO FTWWWWWWWWW.
Why did you guys stop making these?
Tooling getting worn?
Low demand?
I know I've talked to a handful of people who are on high alert for a set.
I know when the day comes that I part ways with the STi I'll be selling them separately.
Even stored the original box too :LOL:

That's a beautiful ride, subtle upgrades

I asked the guys in Japan about this, they didn't give much details but said they have gotten inquiries about this model... perhaps not enough though, even so there weren't any more runs planned. If enough owners were on board, who knows!

Glad you are enjoying them!

Aesthetically, my build is like OEM++.
Everything that can be touched has been touched, but it's more about how can I refine it or enhance it or push it into the future, not how can I make it stand out and look super obvious.
The STi is my daily, so I don't want it to look like a track car, or like a show car, or some instagram build.
Your tails are perfect in this respect in that they don't look aftermarket to someone who wouldn't know better.
Some of the tails that are still available from other brands (above) scream aftermarket, because they aren't in the theme of the car, they just look different (IMO, still better than stock, but not OEM).
Your tails introduce the red and hide unsightly side markers, upgrade to LEDs, and have a light pattern that is cooler and complementary to the general aesthetic of the car.

I can imagine the demand has cooled on these because the GR hatch (in good/moddable shape) is becoming less common or desired, I was just super lucky to catch the post about a box of final inventory they had found in your Japan warehouse.
Japan post had paused operations to Canada, so I literally paid to have them shipped to a friend in NY and then shipped to me here.
I had already wrapped my OEM tails red, but these are far nicer by no contest.
