WTB: Halogen Headlights - slightly burnt lenses ok

I am looking to purchase standard 986/996 halogen headlight assemblies, both right and left ones but willing to buy individually too. Don't need Litronics. I don't mind if the lenses have slight burn marks. I would like to avoid headlights that have the orange turn signals though.

If you can't find a set w/o the orange turn signals, I have a set with the orange turn signals, shipping + offer. If interested, pictures to follow.

Hi, have a set. Will let them go for $340 Each shipped to your location as long as it's in contiguous 48. Will get pictures shortly.

Thank you,
David

So, $680 for the pair?

Get them brand new for $699: https://m.ebay.com/itm/Porsche-Boxster-986-1999-2004-Headlights-Front-Lamps-PAIR-LH-RH-OEM/292629898323?

The clear corners are typically $30 (from Latvia) - $112.00 for the set on eBay as well. Other clear turn signal headlights on eBay range from $334-475 each, some with shipping some additional shipping. My price is very reasonable for what you're getting. I always compare my prices to eBay/986Forum/Renntech/Facebook to ensure I am selling ng at a fair price.

Thank you,
David

I noticed you've been trying to sell them for a while. You might consider lowering your expectatations if you want them to sell faster, but good luck.

They can actually be found new for $690 shipped if you know where to look.
Personally, I've never paid more than $400 for a used set with corner trims...nor would I.

I paid $699, shipped to my door, for brand new ones.
Honestly, to me, those should be $75/ea, used, all day long.
But I guess what something is worth is determined by what someone is willing to pay, yeah?
But you'll never catch me paying more than about 35% of new, for a used part.

I agree with you guys. I am looking to spend less than $400, and hopefully lower if they have slightly burnt lenses.
For around $700, I would just go with new ones.
If anyone has any leads, please let me know. Thanks for the responses so far!

Thank you all for the positive advice. I am just starting with a couple parts cars and basing pricing off of what I find online. It looks like I need to review my pricing. Again, thank you for the advice and hopefully I can help you all in the future with part needs.
Thank you,
David

Hi, let's try again. Sell for $85 each shipped to you. I know I have the passenger side, believe the driver side is in my other storage location, but need to confirm. Let me know if you have an interest.

Thank you,
David
