    I want to buy some aftermarket head lights, either retro new or used, smoked, black, LED, whatever. I'm in the market for new headlights and if you guys have them to sell post em on here and I'd love to do business with you.
    Thanks :D

    I heard they all leak and will only last a little while and it will make me want to go back to stock. Thats why the price on stock head lights is pretty high

    Seal them up with extra silicone and you'll be good to go

    x2, the Ebay ones don't have as much sealant so you need to use some silicone around the edges and they'll stay water tight. Why do you want to replace the OEM ones?

    FWIW, if you have the coin, a retrofitted OEM set would be the best regarding light output.

    If you are going to spend the money on aftermarket lights and not get as good out put as the OEM ones, you might as well spend the extra on the OEM retro's to get the best output possible.....just saying

    Ya I hear you. I just hate the look of the stock lights. An actualy just realized that if I buy new ones, I can sell the stock ones so that upped my fund a little. Thanks for the advice everyone. Would love if you'd post pics or links of some reputable places or lights you've had or heard good thinks about. Thanks

    the light output on low beams was fair, but high beams were better than stock, but when i found out it would be to difficult to retro these i sold them to a guy on here and took that money and got the retro's during the GB that just ended
