Around $350 shipped compared to the over $600 for the dealer part?

If it's made in China, you get what you pay for. I'd say no as the OEM original will most likely be of much better quality. That's just me though.

That being said.... Option racing isn't too bad, if it's what i'm thinking of.

Personally.... i'd be the moron to do it and figure out how to make it look good, but that's just me.

And plus... you saw my car, it ain't pretty.

Get them smoked if you can. Those look sick with HID.

Eh, the fact they don't have an ECE or even a DOT certification visible would have me running the opposite direction.

Save up for OEM. Make a friend in the parts dept. :)

Most of those ebay lights have garbage light output, I would stay away. Unless you like them just for the look or if you're going to retrofit some HID projectors in there.

What I might do is just buy a different set of used headlights and reseal them.

Neither of mine aim right.

Dude.. why not clean up the ones you have?

There are loads of DIY stuff about removing the seals, the wet sanding on the inside to remove the haze, blacking out the backing, resealing with a clearness only like new.. etc.

Why not just put the time in yourself?

Clay, The ones I have no longer can aim correctly whatsoever.

It sucks...I jerry rigged some fogs to help.

We'll see.

ah, that sucks they're in such crap shape. I would try to get a set from a Lexus board member or something.
