Default 2008-2009 OEM NOS Headlamps LH RH

Hey guys - I have a pair of OEM GM Headlamps that are brand new, still in the GM boxes. I have had them on ebay without any luck selling. Would anyone be interested in these?

They came with an Astra that I purchased but I was able to salvage the originals before I sold the car. Now i have these and need to get rid of them.

My price through GM was over $400 a piece - I am going to ask $575 for both and I will ship them in the US for free!

You can search them on ebay with my username jcclw18


Thanks and let me know 330-506-0855

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

There is a running Astra near me selling for $800 so you might have a struggle selling just headlights for $575.

Good luck.

I think that if you stick to your guns, sometime this summer you will sell them to a body shop looking for new, unused open stock. The idea of a new set and how they might look is pretty appealing, given I must treat mine every 9 mos. or so.

I think to the right person they would be worth something. Again, I have no use for these so if someone made a reasonable offer Id like to see them leave!

Might have better luck attempting to sell overseas, I know shipping would suck but there's a way bigger market over on that side.

I've already got two sets of lights or else this would be a great deal for someone looking to restore their worn out/sun faded lights.

I've had my "new" set sanded, polished and 4 layers of clear coat sprayed on them.

Note: British headlights are different so we can not import/export headlights to/from Right-Hand Drive (RHD) countries.

Some (not all) aftermarket Astra headlights have a manual switch built in each casing to change between LHD and RHD light patterns. That switch does not exist on OEM headlights as far as I can see.

Also, there was a refresh of the Astra H headlights so older versions (around 2007) so the older headlights might look different, have different harnesses, etc.

Few months ago, I bought a pair of Bi-Xenon HID Hella's Headlamps from www.buycarparts.co.uk that is an UK based website. When shopping around we look for something like for OPEL ASTRA H GTC 1.8 140 HP. Opel Astra's are Right-Hand Traffic like ours.

A pair of brand new OEM Saturn Astra Bi-Halogen Headlamps for $400 is a good deal. Trouble free: Plug and Play.

My Bi-Xenon HID Headlamps are not installed yet but they are all ready adapted, tested, over and over, and working wonderful without any issues. I will keep updated!

Hey guys,

Still have these and they are doing me no good in my garage.

$250 plus shipping to buyers location?! They have to be worth that to someone!

Thanks!

That is a steal ! !

Well worth the price if you don't like refinishing your old ratty headlights every six months. And are sick of dimming older headlights. . .
