Default FS/TW: Mazdaspeed headlights

OK, so I had a small incident with a tire on the road and and am having the front of my car worked on. As part of it, they're replacing my headlights and I am getting the old ones back. They look fine on the outside with only minor road pitting on the lenses. Nothing major.

HOWEVER-
There are 2 (two) broken tabs..one on each headlight. On the PASSENGER SIDE, one tab was completely broken off. As soon as they are in my possession, I will epoxy it back together. This is one of the few tabs the helps support the bumper up, though not detrimental. Not visable once installed. This was enough of a break to make a hole in the bottom of the housing....but once again, this will be SEALED when I get them back.

The DRIVER'S SIDE there is also a broken tab, but it's one of the small ones and DOES NOT effect the mounting of the bumper or the headlight.

This is the actual condition of the headlights (picture taken recently)...tabs were broken when picture was taken*





$500
retail is over $600 each new and many used lights gor for $300+ per side.

*Will have pictures of headlights as soon as I get them back*



PICTURES ADDED********************************************* **





Repaired tab is VERY strong!! Hold the light up by the tab.



Yeah..not going anywhere.

**** me sideways I need these, my corksport FMIC doesn't let me run a 99-00 drivers side headlight. I'll get back to you if I can scrounge the cash up. ^^

*let me reiterate*
Headlights are NOT currently in my possession. They are at the body shop in boxes. As soon as I get them in hand, I will post up actual pictures. This could be up to two weeks as the replacement MSM headlights for me are on backorder.

FYI, those tabs don't matter much, the 99-00 lights do not have them....at least the ones that I've pulled.
