    I want some black stock head lights...would be willing to try the BHLM myself, but would rather they were done...lazy:D I don't really trust the Ebay ones...
    I have some stuff to trade...or cash.
    (stock exhaust, intake, stereo, new URD fuel pump...)
    can anyone help me out?

    Don't bother with those Ebay or aftermarket lights. I've had issues with them in a few reasons. I didn't want to do the bhlm and bought a set.

    They use inferior parts that don't last. They tend to leak and with the cheap material they use. Its a matter of time. If you're lucky and they don't leak.

    The UV coating and plastic on the outside is cheap and with time. They peel and discolor a lot faster than factory.

    I had these issues and decided to try opening them up to practice for a bhlm myself. The parts inside are just so cheap and crappy.

    Do the bhlm yourself or buy it from someone who knows how to do it right. Money better spent as I practiced on these before I did it on a factory set.

    I have a set of perfect-condition OE headlights off an '07. They aren't the black ones, but they are factory Toyota.

    They are in my storage unit so I don't have pics, but last I remember they didn't have any scratches. They aren't terribly heavy but the boxes are big (inside foam formed from some after market headlights). Not sure on shipping... I could get a quote once I get to the boxes and weigh/measure them. Probably at least $25-$30

    If you are interested, does $150 + actual shipping sound fair?
