    Man, I’ve got an old set of lens assemblies that are not in great shape so I was looking online for new assemblies. WOW , just lenses and the gaskets around them can get around $400. That’s not including a housing or the middle gas door pieces. That’s all I paid for the shell of the car!!! I know there’s not much to do other than buy them, I was just amazed at the prices, needed to tell somebody. Thanks for listening.

    Yep, been there and done that. It still hurts to pay so much for so little.

    I had to replace a Headlight housing and ballast on my daily driver and the bill from the dealership was $1600. Talk about painful!!!!
