Hi I have Avalon limited 2013 and I looking for custom lights if u have please let me know
Looks like there are not too many options for your Avalon at the moment.
All aftermarket headlights I’m aware of are OE-style, so the visual appearance will not change a lot if you install them.
If you are looking for something different from the stock lights, you can add LED elements to your stock lights by yourself. Consider halo rings, LED strips, etc. You can do the installation by yourself, or hire a shop to do it for you. Alternatively, you can add chameleon or smoked wrap to change the front fascia look without major technical mods. Just make sure tinted lights are legal in your state.
Hope this helps!
I am looking to put a set of halo lights on my 2002 chevrolet trailblazer, any thoughts on where i can get a set. my lights are getting old and foggy looking.
There are not too many options for the 2002 Trailblazer. I will give you the part numbers and you can look them up on Amazon, CarID and other automotive websites to see if they have them in stock.
1) CG – Chrome halo projector headlights with LED accents: part # 02-AZ-CT02-PCC-RF-A (CCFL halo) or part # 02-AZ-CT02-PCC-RX-A (regular halo ring).
2) Anzo – Chrome CCFL halo projector headlights – part # 111131.
3) Anzo – Black CCFL halo projector headlights – part # 111127.
4) Oracle Lighting – Factory style headlights with color halo – part # 8168-001 (the most expensive option, $500+).
Note, that all these headlights should come with the bulbs, but these bulbs are not bright at all. So it is a good idea to get the bulb sizes when you will be placing an order (the bulb sizes of these aftermarket headlights will not correspond with the bulb sizes of stock lights you have). So, get good bulbs (Sylvania, Philips, etc) of the right bulb sizes right away. Otherwise, you will not be satisfied with brightness.
Hope this helps!
What brand of aftermarket headlight assemble do you think has the highest quality? I’m looking to buy my 3rd set of headlight assemblies for my 2001 Ford Taurus and I would like my next set to meet or exceed OEM. I’m also interested in any specialty assemblies such as projector or tinted etc.
Any information or advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.
I’d pick headlights by Replace (part numbers: driver’s side – FO2502169C, passenger side – FO2503169C). If you are looking for headlights with black backing, you may like Spyder Xtune® – Black Euro Headlights (part # HD-JH-FTA00-AM-BK). Yet, they come without bulbs, and you are getting just a shell. As for the custom style headlights, looks like they do not offer any. Still, you can pick Spyder headlights and install aftermarket halo rings into them to get that custom look.
I have 2009 GMC Sierra 2500 HD and I am looking for a plasma halo headlight assembly for my truck. I have had bad luck with 2 sets of Spyder CCFL halos (one halo stopped working just outside the 1 year warranty and Spyder would not do anything, so I DO NOT want Spyder brand. Only want white light, no colored plasma. Please advise. Thanks.
If I had a 2009 GMC Sierra HD, I would pick a set of Recon halo headlights with CCFL halos, part # 264271BKCC.
Here is another set of aftermarket headlights for the 2009 Sierra 2500 HD that I personally like. They do not have halos, yet they feature fiber optics, which means that aesthetic lighting will not burn out as your Spyder plasma did. Check out AlphaRex – PRO-Series Black Sequential DRL Bar Projector Headlights with LED Turn Signal (part # 880606).
They have nothing to break in terms of auxiliary lighting, as fiber optics is way more resistant to temperature changes, vibration, and moisture than CCFLs.
Hope this helps!

LOOKING FOR IDEAS. 2003 suzuki carry DA63T. need after market lights, please advise
I’m afraid I cannot recommend an option for you, since as far as I know, there are no good options at the moment. Sure thing, there are OEM style and quality headlights, yet there is nothing much I can recommend with halo lights and LED accents. The only way is to do a retrofit. You can add a projector lens, a clear lens, as well as some decorative elements.
I hope this helps!
Do you have any options for the first gen tacomas 2001
What exactly are you looking for? If you just need aftermarket headlights, there are great and budget-friendly options by Spyder and certain other brands. I will provide the part numbers and specs so that you could look into this and select the ones that you like. Yet, I must admit, they do not offer too many options with LED accents and angel eyes. So, if you are looking for headlights with those stylish LED elements, I’d recommend buying one of the aftermarket headlight sets from my list and then adding a set of halo rings or LED strips by yourself. We have a great article on how to do that and how to seal the lights again. In fact, it is not very difficult.
Now, here are aftermarket headlights that we can recommend for the 2001 Tacoma.
I hope this info helps!
looking for headlight assembly for 2001 Lincoln continental
Thanks for the question. It looks like there aren’t many great options for your Continental. Do you consider retrofit or just adding LEDs or halo rings into the OEM headlights?
That’s something that is not too expensive or complicated, yet you will definitely see the difference! If you are not sure about the time you will need and you cannot stay with your Lincoln sitting in a garage, just pick a set of used to work on. Or, if you prefer brand-new headlights, there are many OE-style aftermarket headlights for the ’01 Continental.
Hope this helps!
