I need a passenger side headlight assembly. Currently I have DEPO European headlights but my lens is broken and I can't get a replacement anywhere. I've emailed so many suppliers on Ebay but no luck.
I ordered a set of new headlight assemblies (they won't sell just one) and they have taken 4 weeks and I don't think they have even shipped them yet. They obviously are being shipping from China and I'm getting tired of waiting.

Is there anywhere in Canada where I can find a cheap set of headlights to throw on? I don't care if they are used or original ugly style headlights. I just need to get it fixed already. No wrecker I've been to has any. I'm in BC.

What do people do when there headlights break!? :surrender:

Have you tried KATMAC? He doesn't sell Depo (he has TYC), but you could replace both headlights with two new Euros and then sell your 1 good Depo on ebay.

I found a guy selling some crystal headlights for about $100 less within Canada. Do those tend to look as cheesy and they appear?

Well, I'm just looking for something DEPO quality. For instance I bought both headlight assemblies and clear corner lenses for $200 plus shipping. However, they're taking forever to ship them.

Has anybody ever tried getting used parts from Japan? Are there any online venders?

So this is to future buyers who find this thread. Do NOT buy from Import Vision Motorsports Importvision Motorsports - Lighting and Accessories for European, Japanese, and American Vehicles including Joe's VW Garage Welcome to Joe's VW Garage and IV Auto Lights IVAutolights - Specializing in Automotive Replacement Lighting

They still haven't provided me a tracking number in 5 weeks since I ordered my headlights and they will not refund my money.

I get most of my parts from ebay.de
It's original parts and good prices for rare items. I just got a Sportline steering wheel for $270 shipped.
