I am Looking to buy a extra set of roadster headlights in good quality condition if anyone has any for sale, perhaps you had the HID upgrade and have a set laying around?

I have my originals, too, saved when they were replaced by HID. But part of the reason for the replacement was that they were peeling, so not what you want.

Tesla offers HID Xenon lights directly from service center. I heard from a few members they still have them although it's a pricy upgrade; They used to be $2,400 plus labor when roadsters were still being serviced. I heard now they are $4k since they don't offer these on a daily basis anymore.

They give you entirely new lights since the code for xenon or HID requires a secure bracket or secure spot for the Ballisters underneath the lights.

Or my headlight guy can install the Bi-xenon: Morimoto Mini H1 8.0 HID Projectors with custom fitted bracket - (not the bracket to hold the ballister; the bracket / ring to hold the morimoto h1 in place) his bracket guy created for the housing for your original lights. - Diyme Designz – Custom Automotive Lighting which would probably be $700-750 at most total for both lights to upgrade to HID.

So it made sense to upgrade myself to HID Xenon rather than paying $4k and as you know I got the halo switchbacks; one on the few if not only - lights-halos.mp4
