Replace headlight assembly

I am about to replace my headlight assemblies (99 Accord). The drivers side has excess moisture and both are very faded from the sun. Considering aftermarket because of price. Anyone have experience they are willing to share. I'm pretty sure I can take the bumper off and manage the exchange just wondering if the extra money for OEM is worth it. Thanks. Ross

I have no advice on after market. You might be able to find a used one in better shape than yours.

Here's the instructions in case you need them.

Completed headlamp exchange

Thanks for the advice. I bought aftermarket headlamp assemblies and found they seem to work very well. The fit was near perfect. You do have to adjust the beam and I am not entirely sure if I have them correct but will continue to make minor adjustments until I can find a place to have them accurately set.
