    Hey folks, I was wondering, if any of you can tell me something good or bad about the aftermarket lights for the Xterra? Do they focus fine? Because I've seen the prices for the replacement OE lights, and I am not ready to pay $900 for one headlight, which I have to replace (it was broken in an accident).
    Now, non-OEs are around $200 for pair, and some shipping on top of that, which is way less.
    So I was wondering about the quality, as they say lights are made overseas....
    That's why I doubt whether I should give them a try or no.
    Thanks

    TYC and Depo make most of the OE headlights for most manufacturers. So while it may not be branded as a Nissan headlight, it's likely made by the same company. When you get into the crazy headlights like the projector / LED / blacked out aftermarket ones that in no way resemble the OE lights, those are usually crap.

    Other option is to buy an OE headlight on ebay. I paid about $80 for a gently used OE headlight about 8 months ago.

    I wouldn't buy them. I don't care for the look and I bet the build quality is sub-par. Depending on your state and if you have inspections, they may be illegal.
