WTB: W163 (1st Gen ML) Headlights in GOOD Condition

I am looking to replace the severely yellowed headlights on the 2000 ML320 I just acquired. New replacements are a bit pricey, so I figured I would check here first.

Send me a PM if you have what I need. Thanks.

Dont replace.. It costs too much.

Restore the original ones. there are plenty companies / entrepenuers that offer thsi service for usually less than $50..

Try that first, usually the lights end up looking BRAND NEW again after they have been "restored"

All the yellowish aging is easily removed to reveal a clear, new looking lens

Take a sock and buff the hell out of the headlights with toothpaste.




And I'm not joking. The method works better if you have a rotary buffer or something along those lines.

I appreciate the suggestions and will certainly try to polish the headlights I have to see how they turn out, but they are some of the worst I have ever seen and really think they should be replaced.

Still looking...
