Depends. Do you want aftermarket or factory replacement? There are tons of vendors with fairly priced factory style kits.

I bought some like this for a pretty reasonable price. They look awesome with clear markers.

I'll try to find the vendor I got. Most aftermarket headlights use crappy adjustment screw designs where as the ones I have use the factory type adjustment hardware.

black housing oem style lights look best...amber or clear corners both work. that's just personal preference

I like the factory with a tint. But with aftermarket headlights it all depends if I like the design.

AM sells smoked...if you want to save some cash though hit up ebay. just find a seller with good feedback. also no matter where you buy from don't forget to seal them before install. i don't trust anyone else lol...yes they are sealed before you buy them but a little extra rtv won't hurt and you know for sure you won't get any condensation

Look on amazon.com I bought mine brand new for $65 with free shipping you can't beat that. Why pay $75 for used ones when you can buy brand new ones for that off amazon.

I have the factory lamps painted with tinted clear coat. The nice thing with this is the headlamp lens will never yellow or fade.

I just hit mine with Meguire's ultimate compound because they looked so bad I figured it couldn't hurt. They look so good I don't have to buy another set anymore! You may want to consider trying this before buying a cheap set that may leak.

A set of smoked projection headlights might look good on your ride since its white. Could maybe accent the wheels, and rear bumper some too with some smoked tail lights. For more options check out Depo headlights. Can't get the attachment window to work but here is a link.

Sooo not done bro take some 320 sand paper and wet sand all that white **** off then go back and wet sand withh 800 then 1000 then 1500 then 2000 and finish off with 3000 the more you sand with 300 the better then you get you some compound and a buffer and buff those little 3000 scratches and presto brand new head lights. Autozone has a kit don't remember what brand but has everything you need for 20 I think and if you want to go with the smoked look 15 bucks will get you a can of rustolium lense tinter cones in a can will be with all the spray paint and it will have a dark clear lid do light coats till the preferred darkness

Don't get Spyder brand headlights, on my last car I got some and they looked great, but wouldn't fit right on the car. They would move around a lot until I duct taped them in place.
