Short answer: NO
Definitely cool, definitely not worth $250. That sticker says $8.57, maybe I’ll offer that. I’m sure that will go well.
I did learn post purchase that the KC lights I bought are not compatible with the hard plastic covers. This means if I want smileys, I need to find a retro pair of soft vinyl covers to go over the grill guards. The grill guards seal the lights together, so taking them off is not a possibility either.
For now, I did purchase an all white set. Will paint either the lettering or the grill guards teal to match the rest of the accents on the van.
