Headlights will go for $500-600 if they are in decent shape and lenses aren't burned and the rubber trim pieces are in decent shape. Expect less if the lights need work or cleaned up.

Make sure you get the kit with the two-piece bolts w/ the swivel collar that Ike mentioned and not the one piece bolts. They'll send you the right length bolts when you order the entire kit.

I'm at work, so sorry, no pictures.

I think with your 18" wheels being 1/2 inch wider than my 17" wheels, I'd stick with 15mm in the rear, no wider than 20mm.

I'm a little more conservative...

I like those! They'd look good!

Yeah, Suncoast would love to sell me a set of those. :eek: They'd sure look good in 18" x 8 and 10. But yeah, a lot of spacer for a 10" wheel w/ a 65mm offset.

Maybe a set of the factory two piece 993 wheels would be better? They're 17x7 front and 17x9 rear. Both have 55mm offset. They'd be more expensive and probably need refinished, but...
