Thanks for the help

Best prices I've found other than ebay (which can be found really cheap)

Thanks guy's. Hey what are you looking under in ebay. The only thing I can find is 10 bucks higher than autolenses.

The black covers look really nice. Do they dim the headlights much at night?

they do dim the headlights quite a bit, and some places don't allow them. I know many people that have received tickets for them.

when checking on ebay watch out some auctions are for just the clear lenses and don't include the back mounting part. lOOK close

I bought those cheap headlights from Ebay. Don't go there. They looked nice but each time I washed my car they got water inside. The inside chromium plating got blurry and I had to replace it with original parts after two months. They also didn't fit as good as the originals.

It is generally a good idea to seal any new headlight with silicone. Not many headlights are sealed really well.

I don't have any problem with the orginal parts. I think if you are buying new parts you shouldn't need to fix it before installing.

Well, when you buy them for $70/pair vs. ~$75/each I can afford to put $1 worth of silicon around the perimeter of my aftermarket headlamps.

Also, it is a good idea to pop out the molded inserts that are in the aftermarket headlamps as they spin very easily... Just pop them out and use a longer bolt with a self locking nut underneith and it'll never break on you! I attempted to drill out the molded inserts when I first got mine, only to have them freeze on the drill bit and spin out of the housing. Exactly what I needed to happen.


BTW, here's a link to the guy that I bought mine from:
Ebay Headlight Auction

And if you let water in, you better find the leak and get them dried out quick or you will end up damaging the reflective coating on the inside.

Ok. You can fix that. I still think you should't. But you don't want to install more than 65 W lamps in those assemblys. The plastic supports of the black metal deflector inside will melt and the loose parts will fall inside the lamp. And there is no way to take them out from the inside or fix it. It happened to me.
These are the ones I bought. I don't recommend anybody try it.
