Need new OEM headlight ~ where to buy?

In the process of taking apart my passenger side headlight, I cracked the lens

Need to buy a new one, but not sure where to buy from. Most of what I see online is aftermarket.

I'd like OEM, but any recommendations would be great.

Thanks.

I just googled "2007 pontiac g6 headlight assembly" and found lots of sites. These are the first 2 in the list. You may need to change the year for your, I don't know what your's is.

Thanks; I saw those. I'd really like to go with OEM. gmpartsdirect.com has them for about $115.

Don't you have those spyders? How different would that lens be? I'm pretty sure those will bake apart easily so why not see if it fits?

I have the spyders, but I HATE the projector lights. They're incredibly dim. I had HID in my OEM headlights, so I'm planning on modding those with a halo kit.

The spyders were a complete waste of money. The light output is HORRIBLE with the halogen H1 bulb and even worse with the HID bulbs.

I don't know why people like these...you can't see anything at night

So the plan is original reflector beams with HID and a halo kit installed; all inside chrome painted black.

I mean just swap the lens from the spyder over onto the OEM light. The outer lens should be the same shape as it follows the contour of the car. At least I would think it would fit.

good idea...except it wasn't the lens that broke. It was the rim on the black housing. I don't know what they used to seal the damn thing but there was no way it was coming apart. I baked it in the oven, heated it with a hot-air gun, pried and pulled, and finally the housing just broke.

The driver's side came apart pretty easily; the adhesive was the soft kind. The passenger side had the hard, concrete-like stuff.

I heard they changed the adhesive in 2007; I guess they changed it right in the middle of building my car!!
