    Retrofit is the only way to go. Expensive, but damn they're pretty.

    crystal clears. they're nice they throw light a little weird until you aim them. although there is reports of them not sealing tight enough and moisture build up, i have not had any trouble and i'll probably be doing the retrofit myself here soon enough.

    I just bought the Spyder Smoked headlights for my 2000 for like $95. They look good in person, but I haven't put them in yet.

    Lol I'm glad you asked! I just finished them for the second time. First time I used wheel paint by rustoleum I believe. I just stripped and re did them completely with Rustoleum satin black semi gloss enamel. They came out incredible I just hope they last. I used the same black on the bumper and grille.
