2001 Kia Optima Question: Headlight Unit

 

Question

I need to replace a headlight unit on my 2001 Kia Optima. Can I use the headlight unit from 2004 Kia Optima or are they completely different style? A brand new assembly is too expensive. Any cheaper suggestion?

Thanks,
Pathfinder

    2001/02 headlamps are the same.
    Have you tried looking on line for a second hand head light assembly.
