Replacement Headlights

Postby Lancer1993 » Sat Jun 06, 2020 8:11 pm

Considering replacing my headlights as the ones on my 09 VRX are sun damaged and won't clean up.

I've seen OEM ones going for about $250 a pair, not sure if they are genuine at that price. They do look the same as mine.
They are AU based as meet local requirements.

My other option is after market with DRLs for about $360 but I've heard some of them are useless when it comes to actually working.

Are there any after market ones with DRLs that actually work and are legal?

I'd go new if getting genuine ones, unless they are local and can be inspected.

As I asked does anyone recommend any of the after market ones with DRLs built in that actually work.

Also do we have a thread with detailed instructions to remove the bumper to swap the headlights?

There is nothing wrong with TYC branded lights, they have been around for years and their automotive products are well made.

Be aware that you need to ask for Right hand drive lights so you get the correct light pattern

Oh what a shame
And here I was thinking it could be all fixed up with a bit of blue tac and a few strips of aluminium foil.
Mmm
