    I am trying to find some decent OEM style headlamps. I replaced the originals less than two years ago with some aftermarket ones from Headlight Depot and they look like crap already. If anyone has any recommendations for some replacements that are affordable and will last a decent amount of time please let me know.

    Got mine from American Muscle. Haven't had them a full year yet but they still look good. Price wasn't bad either.

    Got mine from AM too. $60 each and they look like the ones off the showroom floor.

    I pretty much plan on replacing mine every 2-4 years no matter where I get them.

    Thanks, I will give American Muscle a look. I am going to try and sand / buff the ones I have till the new ones come in. they way they are now, you can barely tell you have the lights turned on.

    They need to use a plastic that is more resistant to UV in those damn pods. A UV resistant plastic treatment like 303 Aerospace Protectant can extend the life but it has to be applied frequently and regularly over time. Aftermarket products can clear the hazing but typically only temporarily. Some people restore them by going through elaborate sanding processes using finer and finer sandpaper. You can find those threads easily.
