    Holy chit, I've done a lot already!!
    I just cracked my drivers side tail light on saturday. It's not bad, but I want it fixed sooner rather than later. I am looking for opinions on what to buy, or not. I found aftermarket stock 2006 lights on e-bay for $55. OEM run about $113. I really want LED, but the cheap e-bay ones scare me. OEM on e-bay are going for about $280, which is cheap, but I just don't have that now. My current tail lights are partially smoked so going with an exact replacement requires me to try and match them. Just curious what all your thoughts are for replacement. Cost is a factor. If anyone happens to have anything for sale, let me know also. I would have put a poll up, but I was looking for more elaborate opinions.
    Stay with stock and match the smoke, buy oem.
    Stay with stock and match the smoke, buy aftermarket.
    Upgrade to LED, buy oem.
    Upgrade to LED, buy aftermarket (which brand?).

    Before the incident.....
