Would be easier and better on the wallet to paint man, heads from a dealer none the less is robbery

thanks for the link ;)

how about you buy my 2004-5 headlamps with ballasts/bulbs that i just installed this summer if you don't want the SDs. $1k mint condition!

The housings new cost around 750

1k is kinda step seeing i already have 2set of ballasts/bulbs so why spend the extra money if i can get the housings for 750?

and is 750 retail or cost because i can get body shop cst which is i think 20-30% off

There are bare housings going on ebay for under $400 shipped. They are 2003 housings from what I can determine. You might want to contact the seller to see if he has the newer dark ones. Let us know what he says, because im looking for a reason to get rid of my sandblasted originals =].

i'm just making an offer, don't feel like swapping out the parts if i sell them. makes everything easier, and it's still cheaper you just sell your parts
