Headlights Sourcing New/Used

One of mine is pretty discoloured. Thinking about getting some new (/used) ones. Where would you guys look? How much would be the going rate new/used. If it's not too bad might get some.

Thanks

Have you tried to restore them by sanding them down?

Did the headlights on my 350Z in the summer. Looked fab after i'd finished and they were pretty awful before.

If you have or can borrow a polisher, just give them a going over with some farecla g3.

Just done mine with some T cut.
They now look like new.

I did see a ad the other day for a company who come out and restore them for about 30 per headlamp.

I would definitely go the restore route first I think that you will be very happy with the results.

If you just want to change the 1, and it happens to be passenger side I will have the oem available in a couple of weeks from my 53plate which has done 41k miles

Problem is it's the inside of the light that it's messed up. Seen videos involving heating up and taking apart. I wouldn't be comfortable in doing that. Rick could you send a pic of your light please and a rough price? I ideally need two as I've been told someone hacked the lights to fit none HIDs and I can't properly adjust the passenger one.

My apologies, I got muddled up. I actually only have a drivers side available. If you're still interested let me know and I'll send you pics.

Hi Ojay,

Just presumed that was a dud due to the date. Do you have any more pics of them? Are all the bulbs OK? If so could you send me some pics.

Thanks
