Any chance of exchanging the dark jewel headlamps & corners for the factory stuff plus cash?
Why do you guys do that?
The man is trying to sell his (very nice) R the way IT IS
Re: (HoustonT5-R)

Of course he can do whatever he wants to, it's his car but they are a good selling point and if it were MY car I would leave them on.
Good luck with the sale whatever you do
