    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.
