You can buy crappy aftermarket headlights just about anywhere. Not sure why you'd want to though

Well unfortunately you're going to have to pay 400-600 to get quality. You've gotta figure that the price includes Oem/Oem style headlights, all the parts for the retro, and labor itself. When you think about all that it isn't cheap.

Keep it stock.

I had a set of K2 Motor headlights for a while. Biggest exterior lighting mistake ever. Went back to stock and upgraded to brighter bulbs (not HIDs). It was a night and day difference.

Get both. One for the winter, one for the summer. Like winter wheel/tire setup.
