It's hard to find any car less than 10 years old in salvage yards in the U.S. At least not in the northeast near where I live. When I was younger, I used to go to one of the 5 u-pull-it lots within an hour drive of me. But all of those lots sold out to LKQ and while 3 of them still operate as u-pull-it lots, they don't have any modern vehicles to pull from. Instead, all the vehicles are stripped for parts, with the parts being cataloged and sold from a database to repair shops.

I broke an interiour panel when installing my subwoofer and amp, so I had to order it from fourgreen.com and it took about 2-3 months before it arrived at my door. The cost wasn't that bad, just a long wait.

I thought so. I am looking for decent price for auto dimming mirror with garage remote and possible LED tail lights. If I buying online it will cost me over $1,000.

Yea, you will never find tail lights at an LKQ affiliated u-pull it yard for a modern vehicle. Those are a hot insurance commodity for people that get rear ended. Those lights get pulled, catalogged and shelved, just wanting for someone to get hit. Then a body shop will purchase it at a premium price and insurance pays the bill. They make way more money that way, as opposed to someone doing a u-pull it where they might sell both for $60.

I am wanting a headlight to mess around with doing a retrofit. Even a broken one would be fine. Where can I find one of those at? Need a 2016-2017 Halogen light.

You can buy the gentex auto dimming with homelink on ebay or amazon all day for under $100.
