Looking for Recommendation on Aftermarket Headlights

Recently one of my headlights was destroyed and a new OEM unit is over $300...however, I have seen aftermarket ones for much less per pair...any recommendations?

I was leaning toward smoked since the car is all black...For example:

I was thinking about those that you listed, but didn't know if they were good or not. I have read that there are some real cheaply made ones out there. I know Blue Oval Industries make some good lights, but they are expensive, too.

The pair from BOI is roughly $230 and includes the side markers. The reviews I am finding suggest they don't put out a lot of light and quite a few guys are getting 6000k HID kits for around $60 in order to see better at night...

They are sharp looking headlights, though...

post up whatever you go with, I am interested in changing mine out. Are you going to black your taillights out, too?

here is a post from SVTperformance, thought you might like some insight

"I had stock headlights which had oxidation. Then went to black beauties, moisture even after being sealed then oxidized. Went to smoked headlights, moisture, water damage on the inside from the moisture, now oxidation. Oh and both those aftermarket ones, it happened within a year. Great stuff! So now I'm going back to OEM"

Ugh...that's scary, but I think BOI has a decent warranty...And the taillights, I guess I ought to do those as well!
