Hi! I wanted to know here are people getting their replacement headlights right now?
I saw a post for SPYDER.
My headlights look like cataracts on her right now. She's been polished but thinking it's time to just replace both of them.
Any recs? I know at MB here in Seattle it's like over 800 for both. and it looks like SPYDER is sold on 3rd party sites and not their own.
Or anyone have any real success in restoring them and having them stay clear for longer than two months?

Lastly, rec on the shorty antenna? I saw some old posts but the links were expired or unavailable.

Thank you!

Ahh, but he didn't say he wanted OEM. Or will that affect the key operation if its not?

Mine there were really yellow but i use a meguiar's headlight restoration kit and so far so good, been 2 years.
Thank you! I will give it a try. One of my girlfriend's can use some headlight love too so we'll do both and see it turns out. Thank you for the rec. Worth a shot before brand new lights 💫
