    Not sure they are same units? The $600 one includes the lens, which is apparently very expensive item on the GT. I think that was the point, too. Your listing is just the assembly maybe?

    If I am wrong and they are exactly the same thing, it is a very good deal!!!

    No not the lens, I missed the point yes, but this whole ordeal goes to show that say the lighting assembly official Mitsu OEM is a rip off to alternatives., and where is the hardware on the one Top Gear posted? Mine at least had hardware. Sorry Mark for sure good deal was my focus.

    Both your link and Top Fuel's are for official OEM Mitsubishi parts. Yours is the standard halogen headlight assembly. Top Fuel's is the HID assembly, a completely different assembly available on only the top trim levels.

    The site you linked to also has the HID assembly for $591.04.

    The HID assemblies are confusing for sure. I used your website link to find headlamp assemblies for a 2018 Mirage GT and got 3 different sets of left/right part numbers. All of them say they are HID...but that doesn't sound right because the prices are all over the place and the part numbers are all different...

    Whichever ones are correct for a GT, I'm guessing those are the $600 ones. This is probably one of those times where the parts guy needs a VIN number to make sure he's quoting you the right part.

    So if you ever come across a Mirage GT in a junkyard, grab the headlights because they are worth more than the salvage yard may realize.
    I replaced my halogen assemblies with the gt hid ones and yes the assemblies can be spendy, the bulbs not so much.

Can't wait to get a decently loaded one to keep
    This car has the lowest amounts of documented premature CVT failures compared to other Jatco equipped vehicles I believe? If this was a Nissan Versa/Sentra forum I would agree on the CVT being the weakest link definitely.
