New lenses

Call or post to EST and beg (as a loyal furom member) for the sale price they recently featured for their replacement lenses - it's also an opportunity to upgrade to projectors!

Dark night and high-speed cruising; I have no idea what got me. I remember hearing something, but did not discover the damage until I stopped for fuel.
Can't spring for ecodes now, but I'll check out those projectors. Thanks!

Back in 2008 I was driving my 2002 GMC Envoy on the JFX/83 and I was pretty in the Baltimore City. I was doing around 65-70 in the fast lane on an overpass and all of a sudden an 80+ deer hopped the median. My timing was pretty much perfect, as I just nailed it with my grill (a few seconds later he could have been on my lap). With traffic behind me, I had the drag the poor guy like a solid 30 ft before i could pull to the side. I wish I still had pictures - it caused $9,000 in damage. Considering how strong the headlights on the R feel, I can't imagine how the object/animal that hit you fared.

The things you can hit in MD.....

If I needed anymore reason to hate I-95! That sucks dude.

Any difference between the R and the regular S60 headlight glass? I see regular S60 headlight glass going for like $30 on ebay.

the R glass is clear and does not alter the beam, the "regular" glass is covered with beam pattern altering fresnel beading.

Your insurance should pick that up under comp with no ded its glass. I got mine to replace a taillight twice. Also it was a flying object not like you hit something give it a shot and let me know if you need help.
