Re: Blackhouse Recommendations

If you're going to buy aftermarket headlights, make sure they're DEPO brand. They're the next best thing to Stanley's.

Everything else is ****.

Re: Blackhouse Recommendations

Those DEPO ones from TAS, or any of the eBay ones for that matter... can they be taken apart to remove the amber (or clear) bottom strips like the stock ones?

I want to buy new headlights and I want to make sure the insides are the same.
