Headlight Housing - Replacement?

Good day all!
Been a long time since I've logged in.
I have a 2000 V6 4X4. The headlights are yellowed, and need to be replaced. I didn't really want to go with factory and they are rediculously priced.
I would like some recommendations from your experiences. What brand/type etc. I don't want something that will look cheap or break easily.
Thanks in advance!
Cheers!!!

Dutch

buy the 3M lens restoration kit...
sand/buff that yellow gone...
good as new.

Celebrate with all the money you did not spend

btw... the ebay crystal clear housings are junk.
I know... because I have them.
I wouldn't spend money on those...
unless you intended to upgrade those to HID projectors.

^what he said about restoring if yellowing is your only problem. I used the Meguiar kit and it worked great. They are clear again. Just make sure you use the sealant they give you after cleaning them.
