    Default Need to replace my Honda CRV headlight assembly

    My 2003 headlights are fogy, on the inside, so I would like to replace both of them. I checked with 2 places in POP. One wanted 8,150 pesos per light, the other said they no longer carries them. But when they did the last one sold for 1,300 pesos. This is a little crazy. Any one know where I can get these at a reasonable price? thanks

    not $35. the range is between 200 dollars and 75 for that part, per side. anything below that is going to be junk, with broken tabs or haze. still beats 8 thousand pesos, though.

    Certainly not original Honda for this price.....but will probably do the trick for you.

    aftermarket, but they are just as good as the OEM, in certain cases. good find, playa.

    Default auto parts

    The next time you are in the capital, you can check around Villa Juana's "la 20" the area loosely bordered by Tunti de Cáceres to the south, Maximo Gomez to the west, Maria Montez to the east, and Pedro Livio Cedeño to the north. You will find many used auto parts sold out of storefronts. The prices are low and you can make a deal for on the spot installation, but all parts are sold "as is." It's not a bad deal for the sort of part you are replacing. You will find the prices to be very competitive. You can even try out the replacement for a couple of nights and make a deal to sell the "core" originals to further cut your cost.

    Try to stay south of Pedro Livio Cedeño. Also, try to complete your business an hour or so before dusk.

    Doesn't $200 US = $8000 RD at the current exchange rate?

    Why not get a kit to clean your headlamp lenses. They run about $20usd and you can do it yourself.

    thanks everyone for your suggestions. LTSteve, the fogging is on the inside and you can not get there to clean it.
