Default Headlights needed

Okay, so I was involved in a minor accident a week ago and I'm getting everything sorted out by the Insurance company. In the accident my hood, grill, and driver's side headlight were damaged. I have considered getting JDM/EDM headlights, but I'm not to sure of spending almost $1000 on headlights. Are there any less expensive alternatives? I've seen the "Black Diamond" Headlights on Ebay, they look okay, but I'm unsure of the quality.

Any suggestions?

The EBay lights are crap, this has been well documented here.
You can look for a set of Morettes, they may not be available new any more but used ones frequently turn up here in the Private Classifieds for around $4-500.

That's right, but I prefer the JDM or EDM light it's look much much better than morettes. I think you can find a used set.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm still torn. I can't seem to seperate my wallet from my arse to spend the money on the EDM/JDMs. The price difference between the "stock" looking lights on ebay and the JDM's is the cost of an accesport (I'd rather have the accessport). We'll see, I still have a few weeks before the car goes into the shop.
