    you don't need a new pass headlight - try mother's aluminum polish + elbow grease... rub hard for a little while. It will get rid of the cloudyness, but still leave it somewhat hazy.. Then take mother's plastic polish and rub again and it should come out pretty clear.

    Nice car tho - don't give up on the car pc so easily.

    Nothing beats getting a new light.

    I don't see anything wrong with the other one

    When I got my car, it had 5 out of the 6 lights were yellow. I did the rubbing thingie with polish, scratch remover, and even sand paper. Well, the lights were still considerably yellow compared to the new light, but they did clear up.
    So that's were I got my "nothing beats getting a new light" statement from

    eh I guess I'm just picky... a new light is never "identical" to an aged light. like someone backed into my friend's 2000 corolla and the only damage was the headlight. I replaced it for him, and he thought it looked great, but it annoyed me that they weren't exactly the same "newness".... idk.. just me... anyway I digress...

    Well, the passenger side HL has a lot of haze on it. I am going to just get another one and I this guy I know retrofit them after that. To have it replace is like 260, that's a lotta bread just for the head light. I've tried the mother's chrome polish and it worked well for a lil while but nothing bets a new one. Besides I can prolly get some cheese on ebay for it.

    I just purchased a new indash dvd touch screen the other day but I'm still tossing around the carputer idea.
