Hello everyone. As I've said many times, my vehicle is a 2010 Honda Odyssey with 270k on the OD .I am looking for some good quality aftermarket headlight assemblies. OEM headlight assemblies that I have found are over $250 each. I found headlight assemblies on RockAuto and also on amazon that are WAY more economical.

Evan-Fischer Headlight Set Compatible with 2008-2010 Honda Odyssey Left Driver and Right Passenger Side Halogen With bulb(s) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009DJTBCM/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_TVXWRX2M51NR132VQ4R0

ACANII - For 2005-2010 Honda Odyssey Headlights Headlamps 05-010 Black Housing Driver + Passenger Side https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FP19ZWF/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_i_AWWCFYSM5B994436ZB07?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1


Any insight / advice would be very helpful.

If its hazing, yellowing. I tried a Meguiar product that did a nice job of clearing the lights with little effort. Meguiars 2 step. I see there is a heavy duty product. I was very satisfied with the regular one.

I sent the pictures that are attached to here to the local guy that does headlight restoration. That he said there was nothing they could do with it. I have a hard time believing that. Please see attached picture.

I would lean towards Rock Auto rather than Amazon (or Ebay).

Genuine Honda headlights have gone up in price. $246 at Majestic:

Thanks for getting back to me with the info. They're like $250 each.
Let me double check, but I do believe that the ones on Amazon and the ones on RockAuto or price by the pair.

If my van had about 150k less on the odm was about a million years younger, I could probably justify spending over $500 for the assemblies, but I'm looking for something that's a good aftermarket replacement for the next 30k miles or so.

It's for safety and cosmetic reasons.
I don't want to get pulled over and get to fix it ticket and I also can't stand the way they look at night when the lights trying to shine through them.

I don't have a whole lot of confidence in ebay. I will take your word for it, but I would still like to know why you were staring me away from amazon.

Original post on the thread has a link to rock auto. I think they're like two or three different brand names.

If you got a minute, can you look at the ones in RockAuto and possibly steer me towards the right one? I'm a newbie when it comes to this. 😃

I totally understand and would probably do the same thing, if I was replacing mine now.

I am planning on doing mine very soon. your headlights don't look that bad to me. Have they been refinished before?

I have used products that required sanding and polishing and the end result was pretty good, but far from perfect.

The Meguair product is nothing short of magic compared to what I have used before... and easy. Maybe I will do my headlights this weekend and share the results. They won't last forever, but you get a few years of pretty good looking lights and the better light transmission of a clear lens

Rock Auto does not have as many options as I would have thought:


The CAPA certified is important and good.

I would probably go with the TYC, CAPA Certified, with the red heart.

The ones you linked on Amazon are a brand I've never heard of from a 3rd party seller. My gut feel is that these will be junk and that you'd be better off with the Rock Auto options.

Pair of TYC assemblies goes for probably right at $300 "out the door"
