You can get new ones from Pelican for $35 each. Finding good used ones with no broken tabs or pitting on the lenses may take a while.

I guess the 35$ are aftermarket one,Ill prefer OEM but is there a big difference?I think its a just a piece of plastic.

I doubt that there is any difference at all. I bought my clear corners from Pelican and they look fine to me.

I guess the cheep one is OEM supplier as well,I have seen somewhere same brand as a OEM supplier.Its interesting that Right side is 5$ more expansive than left, total price passing 85$ include tax,so not much price difference then any other place.I will look on ebay for used one, it kind of too expansive.
Thanks.

Good plan, but make sure you see pics of the back side of both corners to verify none of the tabs are broken off. Don't be too terribly surprised if you see condensation on the inside surface of the lens when it rains, as they are known to leak.

In my mind, $85 is pocket change to a guy with a Porsche.

Mark_T,I think eventually Im gonna go with pelican parts, I agree that 85$ is not a big deal, but when you pay 600$ for set of headlights and 85 for a little plastic piece it kind of not fair I remember someone was selling set on a forum recently, I was thinking to grab it that time but missed.
