Amazon.com: TYC 20-9022-00 Honda Fit Driver Side Headlight Assembly: Automotive

They look to be OEM head lights but in black, but it's hard to tell if that's just the picture making it look that way. Anyone ever see these? If they are black OEM's, I'm jumping all over these for my red 2010 mugen sport!!!

They are aftermarket units if that's what your asking. As far as I know OEM parts are only available from Honda. I'd just send the vendor an email requesting details. Cheers.

I'm sorry, I wasn't really clear what I was asking. Has anyone actually seen these in person? Are they chrome inside like stock headlights, or black? The pics make them look possibly black - which would be awesome.

Also, does anyone know anything about the quality of TYC products?

be careful, aftermarkets tend to not have good seals, which lead to fogging of the headlights.

Hum...

I think there's an environmental variable in there somewhere.

I have aftermarkets, they aren't fogging. The funny thing is, because I don't have signal bulbs that fit, the socket for the signal bulb is WIDE OPEN for any and all moisture (and dirt) to get in. So far, only the outside gets dirty, even after last night's t-storm.

In fact, the Fit is the second car I've put aftermarket headlight housing in... both sets have venting holes so the seals are just to keep water from getting in through the front, they aren't "air tight".
