    Looking to pick up new headlights before I put my car back together. Dealer wants more than I want to pay. Has any one had good luck with another source? And did they come with the plastic sourronds that are below the head light?

    Do you need the entire headlight or just new covers?

    Need 1 lower mount and would like new lenses. Mine are rather chipped and just rough to look at. Putting the bumper back on shortly and don't want to pull it to replace lights later. Dealer is about 500 on discount. Which is not to bad but if I can get them cheaper else where with good quality I would prefer that

    I got new lenses from Amazon for around $100 a piece. They fit great and look awesome. There are several models from $100-150 range. I ordered the cheapest ones and they fit great!

    I'm going to have a brand-new set of CAPA certified headlights available in the next ~month. I can do a good price (my cost + shipping) if you can wait. Just to be clear, these are for a Genpu.

    I'll keep you posted. I'm waiting for this semester to end to do the swapping in of Skyactiv headlights (blue bezels FTW to match my CBM Pu.) Then, I'll send back the old headlights for their warranty replacements. Some of the U/V coating was chipping off of one, and the other's seal on top was slightly compromised, allowing some water to get it there, but it quickly evaporated in good weather.

    Regardless, the point is it'll be a little while until this is all done. When I get the BNIB replacements, I'll open them up for pics to show their CAPA certification/brand-new status. If you can't wait, I understand.
