    well, I suggested replacing the timing belt, but we're looking at headlights, ok. I've always felt that the stock units, polished and cleaned up look the best. You could Buy a set of Morimoto LEDs and have excellent headlights.

    And, yes, check the radio fuse.

    I purchased the Autosavers set, the outer lens cover, housing, and mounting tabs are made of thin plastic compared to OEM. When installing, one of the lower tabs broke off when tightening down because the lower bracket was maybe 1/4” lower (slightly bent). I removed the set and just refinished my OEM headlights and threw them back in and sent back the new set. They would be a ok replacement until you’re hit with a small/medium rock. Just hang on to your OEM unless they’re unuseable.

    The ebay headlights are decent. Not OEM fitment but they work.. Adjustment is iffy. Still better than fogged up OEM lights.

    I am going to try polishing-restoring my oems soon. I saw this on youtube and it looks fairly easy to do.

    there are some really good led headlight setups with projectors you can do for about the same price as that Amazon junk. also there are a couple of good threads on this site that will help.

    Order a new head unit while you are doing the radio fuse.

    If your OEM lights can be polished that is the best way to go. The aftermarket lights are all pretty chitty quality wise.

    If you plan on retrofitting, the aftermarket are easier to open since most use butyl but, again, if you are able to polish your OEM lenses, I would do that.

    I polished mine a while back before going to a retrofit.

    I found using 'Cerama Bryte' works very well at polishing headlights.

    The stuff is expensive and you only need a little. If you or someone you know has a ceramic (flat) cook top stove they will have a bottle of it to clean their stove.

    If not can buy a bottle, costs about 20 dollars and can do yours then go into business polishing headlights.
