Default black housing headlights?

I just found some that look pretty nice.
Anyone using these or have seen them in person?
My black '05 could use some new lights.

It's a nice look if you need new lenses. Don't forget, it's alittle work to change them out.

Mine have held up perfectly so far. But it's only been about eight months. They are as good a quality as the OEM headlights and are DEPO brand. I paid right at $126 for the pair shipped from eBay. What's really cool is that in the right light, they have a prism rainbow color effect. Here's a link to them. They've gone up a couple of dollars:

Rainbow color effect (before engine upgrades)

Thanks for the info. Those look really sharp.

I really like the black accents on my silver PT. I also want to add some chrome, but like the black pillars, black mirror housings, black antenna. I'm going to add these to the list!

Those are nice, Handy. It's a nice look on your car.
It's hard to tell, but I think the ones I attached are more black, which might work on my black car.

Mind posting a link, j0e? They do look more black than the one's Handy posted.

In fact, it seems they could be "none more black" (I hope you're a Spinal Tap fan!)

Here's some of them. And they do not appear to have silver signal reflectors. All black there. And they have more black below the headlight reflectors too. If the photos are correct, they look blacker than mine. It's hard to know about the quality. But they are pretty and the price is right.

The part number on those is HD-JH-CHRPT01-AM-BK.

Found these for under $100, and they include hi and low beam bulbs. You just supply the t/s bulb
