Default DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHERE I CAN BUY NEW HEADLIGHTS?

Hey guys I have been searching all over the internet for new headlight assemblies for my 2000 miata. Mine are are all heat cracked and hazed from the Florida heat and I would like to replace them or at least the plastic lenses to give my car a better look and improve light output. I would appreciate if anyone could help me out.

I think this was a next-level lazy post. If the other guy found it that fast, you could have found it as well.

Ouch, $430 for a pair. Go on ebay and buy a good used set for less than half, and if needed, refinish with a $15 3m kit.

Go to Miata.net find the Market Place or Sponsors and find the Used Miata Parts vendors, The Parts Group, Treasure Cost, etc.

Prepare to order at least a few times, I had two separate vendors ship three total pairs of brand new headlights in a large box with no padding whatsoever. All 6 headlights were damaged, but two out of the six were repairable.

how about just send an email/message to vendor and ask them to pack properly or not ship at all?

Priority, while great, just doesn't seem to have the same stock. I have had to order on two separate occasions. The pain of having to wait one day. Such hurt.

Tommy is working on stocking up stuff. He had to send everything back to Mazda when Rosenthal closed.

Yup, did that. Even in the first order. I specifically request that, from every vendor, along with a thorough inspection of every part... **** still gets sent broken, unpacked, defective.... FAB9 still hasn't sent me a replacement ati superdamper. do miata owners normally just take **** and not voice their concerns? Like how is there this much complacency with miata parts? I've spent easily 50 grand on subarus, never had a defective part, only thing EVER was the early GrimmSpeed thick foamy gaskets, they sent me oem replacements overnight. in 2007. /rant
