Coupe
Headlight upgrade

Hey All,

My 2003 coupe OEM headlights aren't in the greatest condition anymore. I found pretty mint condition 2007 projectors barely used for $350 CAD. I believe this is a steal of a deal. Any opinions? This is a great deal right?

Coupe, Premium package, sport suspension
Check to verify that the tabs are intact. If not, it may be that they are literally a steal of a deal. Multiple broken tabs is an indication that they are stolen-- ripped out of a car while the hood is closed. Also, coupe or sedan? They are not the same ... further complicated by fact that first gen sedans run through 2006, coupes through 2007. But yes, if everything checks out, that's the price by someone that doesn't know what they have.

Yeah from the pictures it looks like the tabs are there. I will double check tomorrow when I see them thanks for that tip. They are definitely for the coupe from the pictures i saw. I will post pics after i get them.

If you have a coupe this is one of the best "upgrades" you can make to you ride! They're a plug and play, enjoy!

Exclamation Just a kindly reminding

Just a kindly reminding, there is a big difference of the price and qualiy of the aftermarket headlights.
As I know, you need to notice these 2 points.
1) The price range is 200-2400 USD, so you have a lot of choice, but be careful. Not the expensive one is a wise choice.
2) You need to read the item description carefully, some don't have the hid bulbs, you need to order or use the original bulbs. But for this point, I noticed that some sellers aftermarket headlight with a difference model of the led bulbs, you need to notice if the bulbs model changed. As I know, the headlights are different between 03-05 and 06-09. Why you find the 07 headlight?
