Yeah I just hope the quality of aftermarket lenses hold up ya know . Not that I really use the car much except on the weekends, but I don't garage it because my garage is filled with my other toys.

Yeah at that mileage time to get some new ones. I ended getting some SVT knock off's that came with HID's. Though I wish I would have bought my own HID's since I lost the high beams with the kit that came with the headlights. But for the buck forty that bought them for wasn't just a bad deal back then. So far they are holding up but the clear coat on them peeled off or started to on one headlight and to top it off. I spilled some brake fluid on one when bleeding my clutch one time. That ate into the head light too so now it has spots on it. I haven't tried polishing the spots out yet though I need too.

Yeah I had that issue with the aftermarket ones I put on my mustang , they yellowed after a year and that car pretty much only sees daylight when I take it to the track. I hope the focus ones hold up better.

No yellowing and it's been a few years already. Just the clear coat peeling off. My car is always parked out side too. I'm sure some brands will have more problems than others, but no ones ever really compared the after market non factory lights to each other before. We kind of lump them all into one category lol
