    Holy crap what a difference the new lights make! So yeah, if the P5 lights are too much of a hassle and if you decide to just replace the sedan housings, Depo brand are the aftermarket brand to buy.

    Accidentally posted, sorry.

    Itís not that the housings are a hassle more like super expensive. Cheapest new pair I found was 226, sedan lights are 85 for the pair.

    And I call BS on autozone charging 17 bucks for a standard H7. Passenger side low beam is out and a bitch to remove.

    So bumper removal? Sounds like Iíll need fasteners. And a bottle of whiskey for afterwards lol

    Some guys go through a bunch of bulbs every year.

    You could stock up for cheap.

    Yeah I saw those! I went through Silverstars on the sedan yearly. If not twice a year. Ended up getting Phillips crystal vision sets for 20 each off Amazon. Hoping to have all lights working on Tuesday.

    Good on ya for going with the P5 lights. If I could have found a new set of housings for cheap I probably would have done the same thing.

    I just polished them up and I noticed they do have stress cracks but they are in great condition and nothing's broken and they didn't fog up on me when I had them on.
