I bought the Black "Spyder Crystal Headlights" from Andy's Auto Sport (http://www.andysautosport.com/produc...a99-am-bk.html) which came with all the bulbs so that it was a quick install...and why they cost a little more than the eBay listings.

I love the way they look...and before anyone gets on me for not "clearing the corners", I have purposely left corners intact because they match my (VHT Metallic Burnt Copper) painted calipers.

Here's a comparison between the OEM headlights (upper left pic) and the black headlights (upper right & bottom pics):

I would not suggest buying them, they painted part of the housing black that the light needs to reflect off of, which gives less light out put. I have a set on my daily alero, and its noticably crappier then stock.

Mine are actually noticeably brighter than stock...perhaps it depends on who manufactures them and/or the bulbs being used.

At any rate, my Alero is barely a daily driver since I work from home, so I would recommend taking Sleepy's suggestion into account, especially if light output may be adversely affected.

OK here what I was looking at

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/361543499129

Side note, how are HIDs in these cars? I got a kit for free and installed them in my 01 grand am and it was crap. Looked good, but no light output. I already did the bright light mod, hi and low can run at the same time.

Any newer bulbs nowadays blind oncoming traffic... this is why I hardly drive at night. (Almost got into an accident at an intersection once because of them.)

Dang. Still might get em and just run silver stars. Maybe HIDs in the fog's. I'm surprised OEM ones are not cheap since UPS and some motor homes use em.
