a few peeps have used these but i have not seen any reviews after after long term use. I added that headlight film years ago to prevent the cloudiness? but it appears there are small bubbles in the adhesive now which is just as bad as being cloudy Confused
I'll most likely be going the ebay route myself for replacements.

I have the "blacks" that you can sometimes find on eBay. They are holding up well but my Cruiser is garaged kept and out of the weather. I have seen a few reports here that some of the eBay headlights are a tad smaller and the rubber around the outside doesn't seal with the fender as well as the stockers. Mine fit fine.

I wasnt too pleased with mine. They didnt aim very easily and as mentioned the fitment is a little bit off.

For $100 you can get a set of used OEM units, open them up and paint them black yourself. Theres a DIY here on the forums.

Do you own a good power drill, one that plugs into a wall outlet and not just a rechargable unit? If so, pick up Meguiar's Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit and just fix the headlights you already have. For about $25 and 30 minutes (15 minutes per lens) you can make them look brand new. The kit comes with two sanding discs, 1000 grit and 3000 grit, and a wool pad that you affix to a drill and work in the PlastX (also included) to buff out the sanding marks. Check out our Quik Tips Video on the process first - there is nothing doctored, faked or altered/enhanced in this, just straight up the process using only what came in the kit. It's a piece of cake to do, completely safe, and will do wonders for badly oxidized lenses.
