Aging, scratched, and cloudy stock headlights..

I have a 2003 ZHP with Xenon's. I need to replace the actual headlight assembly for the reasons listed above. I want to switch to 6000K in the process. What do I need to buy and from who?

You can just purchase the outer covers from your dealer and replace those.

If you have stock xenons and want to upgrade to 6000k, you can purchase a set of our D2S xenon bulbs which are simple bulb replacements that will upgrade your stock 4300k bulbs to 6000k xenon white.

Not trying to hijack this thread, but it may be relevant...What is the difference between ZKL and AL? I noticed Pelican makes that distinction too.

ZKW is a different projector unit. AL I believe is Bosch.

For even cheaper you can restore the lens.

Just wetsand it with 800, 1000, 1500, 2000 sandpaper and polish it with a plastic polish or Meguiar's ScratchX. Everything should run you $15, and 2 hours of time.
