You can do the same thing at home with a little patience. It's really not that hard. I know from experience that aftermarket head and tail lights is of less quality than oem. The only thing I can see that would not make this legal is the reflector on the side where the 194 bulbs go.

Yea I have had bad experiences with aftermarket headlights not fitting correctly and looking less than oem in the past. I might look on ebay to see if someone has done the mod to a oem housing. JDM lights seem to be the most popular on ebay.

similar

I got a pair similar to those from neweggmall.com for $98 shipped. They fit perfectly and work fine. Only problem I had was changing out the main bulb from mine which was very minor. (the spring that holds the buld in was a bit too long. just clip it a little bit and it should pop out no problem). If you do order them, make sure you inspect the light and adjusters to make sure there are no defects in the housing.

I did a lot of research before ordering some myself. Those might not be legal. Look for some with the amber reflector. Like these-- http://www.statracing.com/images/store/anzo/121191.jpg
I paid like 260 with shipping. Look at pics in my gallery.

those look nice and they are more expensive than the black headlights on ebay. If they look better I do not mind paying a little more. Is Anzo a good brand?
