Cheap OEM Headlights?

Looks like they're about $230 pretty much everywhere, anyone seen them cheaper?

I'm installing a set of '06 in my '05 and having some morimoto projectors installed.

Check at Rock Auto. They have assemblies that are insurance certified replacements.

Are you wanting “cheap” or “OEM”? Because cheap OEM Toyota parts isn’t something that’s used in the same sentence (an Oxymoron lol) as they are not cheap unfortunately. If you want an inexpensive headlight alternative replacement then I bought these a few months ago and look great. I wasn’t able to (Nor did I want to) spend around$460 for and OEM set then.

So far so good but we’ll see.

Why not retrofit the oem Ď05 housings. The retrofit into the old housing is easier than using the bracket into the facelift housing in my opinion. I had to grind the bracket and housing to get everything tidy. Plus the bracket doesnít allow for much fine tuning.

Hereís what my oem housing look like after some grinding.

I'm having the work done for me. And putting projectors into a reflector housing is a ******* move.

do they have to be new OEM? Ebay has used OEM at various prices depending on condition.

I have an 06 RIGHT side for sale on here. It was an extra that I got while doing my 03->06 conversion.

$20 picked up if you are local to socal. Or shipped at your expense. I'm in 92081.

I think @Sithrebel15 is confused.

HIDs in a reflector housing is a shithead move. Nothing wrong with a projector retrofit into a reflector housing.

another route you can take if you want "new" ones is get a cheap used set of oem ones with cracked or hazy lenses. Then buy a cheap set off ebay or amazon and transfer those lenses over. I just did this and saved a whole lot of money and now I have oem housings with new aftermarket lenses

I bought a set of new aftermarket headlights for roughly $125 on eBay. I haven't installed them yet so I don't know their longevity. I was contemplating transferring the new, clear lenses to my OEM 2007 headlight housings but I'm concerned with properly sealing them so there's no condensation.
