FT: Modified Headlights / Swap - Black Chrome, LED Angel Eyes, Etc

Looking to switch to a new paint scheme, so I am searching for someone who wants to come on site and have the lights from my car swapped into theirs.

I am asking $450 Firm, which is 50% off retail.

Osram CBI 5500K Bulbs can be included for an extra $160 (they have been used for a few weeks, retail price is $200)

My passenger side headlight had a crack in both upper tabs, and they were repaired and they hold up just fine. Besides that there is some light pitting on the lenses which is common.

Before agreeing to the swap, I need you to come on site and let me inspect the lights, and you can also check out mine to make sure you like what you see.

Let me know if you have any questions!


Here is the post I made some time back:
"Black Chrome Effect"

Caesar's been experimenting with his new favorite painting finish; the black chrome effect. He's been wanting to put it to use on on his car, so he traded off the headlights with a local customer and started with a clean slate. In order to pull off the look on his own car, he knew it had to be a very dark black chrome effect. Adding in some extra black to the clear coat mixture, he was able to get the results desired. Only the original chrome pieces will have this effect, which includes the shrouds and the turn signals which are covered with a clear cover. The inner housing is already black from the factory so if you look up close you can see the difference in the color. The factory angel eyes were removed and replaced with the LED rings. The cornering lamp cover was also tinted to give it a darker look. The projector shield was removed and painted with a black to match the darker appearance inside the angel eye rings. Factory ZKW lenses were used for the projector upgrade, along with a few other tweaks to maximize performance. Factory sealant was removed and replaced with the OEM koito sealant. Please let us know your thoughts!

Looks great.

Your stock car looks a little low for some reason. Did you have suspension damage? You can see where panels don't line up correctly. Just wondering.

Sorry, not following you. The car is on Eibach springs. Which panels are you referring too?

Front bumper/headlights/hood fits like crap on these cars in general.

You can see them in the passenger side headlight photos. I used washers under the tab and a black torx screw to hold the tab in place. Its been solid and you really cant tell.

are you trading the car in? I'd do it, but my car has 50k miles. So there will be moderate pitting in the headlights.

No I am not. Mine have pitting too, so I would be able to entertain the swap if you are interested.
