Potential Savings from Used Parts:

You shouldn’t really be purchasing used headlight bulbs, but if for some reason you need to replace the headlight assembly completely you can do so through eBay. As with most headlight assemblies and lenses in general please be wary of cheap imitation products. They tend to cut corners in items such as moldings and seals. This can lead to a substandard replacement. If you want to maintain your car’s original fit and finish try and pickup an OEM quality piece.
