Welcome to the world of Porsche. Tell us more about your car and why you're looking for a new headlight. Is it a replacement? An upgrade? Do you currently have litronics on your Boxster? Many of us use Pelican Parts and/or Suncoast Porsche for our parts. A quick Google will hook you up.

Try rubbing the scratch out with 1200 grade wet or dry paper & soapy water. Once the scratch has gone, polish the area with T-Cut (or some other paintwork cutting compound) to restore the shine.

Well - sort of. You cannot put in the factory Litronics, which tip up and down depending upon braking or acceleration but there are kits which have the Xenon bulbs. You have to add the ballasts for them - there's a "How To" in Wayne's "101 Projects" book available at Pelican....
