Modified headlamps

I've been thinking about beautifying my 2001 Boxster once I get the rear window replaced. Next would be to repaint the front. And then I'm planning to replace the headlamps. I want a new set of headlamps to resemble the ones in the new Boxsters today. Any ideas where I can get a different set of headlamps?

Plan on replacing the front fenders, hood and bumper cover to accommodate the "new" headlamps.

^yup
To modernize the boxster with current headlamps (which you can get at any dealership for $2000) you also need to get a new bumper, fenders and hood, all of which can be got from aftermarket reps. It has been done, Ive seen nice lookin conversions. Price? i dont know, prob no less than $5000 labor and all

Just use a set of 2003 or 2004 headlights without the amber. Direct replacement without modifying fenders, hood, bumper, etc.

I have a set of the 03/04 clear halogen headlights that I bought new and used for 2 short Minnesota winters before I replaced them with Litronics. PM me if you are interested. They are a big update to the front end, but the full de-amber to any 03/04 headlights makes the biggest difference without changing the bumper/hood/fenders.
