For those of you that have changed your headlights to something new, what did you go with? Are you happy with them? Was there an increase in useable light?
My headlights are the standard bulb, not li-tronic, and reflectors are not what they once were, as well as the lenses are in need of refinishing.
For the time being, I will refinish the lenses, but want to switch to led at some point.
So lets see what you have, or have on your wish list.

Good questions. I'd like to see good answers, too. Mine are Litronic, but the driver's side has issues. I have a kit to polish the lenses, but haven't found the time to get to it.

I will be more likely to add auxiliary lighting, if there are no inexpensive options for the OE lights.

There is a member on RL that used these, and liked them, may be worth a look.
1k for a set of headlights seems like a lot, but there are not too many offerings out there.

I'm seriously looking at the chrome ones, they come in black as well, but I'm not sure how they would look on a Palladium Metallic car (pale gold)

That's a bit more than I'm willing to spend, at this point. I'd be more likely to try and create my own lighting. I'd start with someone's old cast-offs for that experiment, though.

This may be an option, still not cheap. there was an article there a few months ago, that covered the install into a 996 head light, I don't see it now. Maybe on youtube, I'll look.

Retrofit Lab was the one on the Morimoto web site. It does not finish the reassembly however, bummer.

I've thought about it long enough, my headlights have been refinished once already, and are yellowed again. Time for a new set, thought I'd go with these.

That should brighten up the front end quite a bit!

When you polished them last time, did you put UV protectant on it? I ask because I polished mine years ago and then placed XPEL film over them. I've not seen any deterioration since.

This is a pic taken last summer, they were refinished by the p.o. I suppose I could try and refinish myself, but then I'd have a set of good looking OLD headlights.
I will hang on to them, and may try an clean them up at a later date.
