OEM parts, where to find for Civic VX

Hi,

I am replacing taillights and headlights and various other parts for my Civic VX in order to pass state inspection. I am having trouble finding OEM parts. Any suggestions? Most Honda Parts stores online have the same parts listed as discontinued.

I have searched the following:
honda parts now
honda parts superstore
amazon

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Are you familiar with car-part.com?

I put in a 1995 Civic in Tennessee and found this under tail lights--I do not see pictures very often, so while these are bad, I usually do not see this much!



I adjusted the picture the best I could; I only took a screenshot to look up the VIN, but their picture was so ugly!

It is a VX! Auto Auction Ended on VIN: 2HGEH237XPH515274 1993 Honda Civic Vx in Nashville, TN

I thought the junk yard had a bad picture!

I love those VX wheels! One inch bigger and they would be perfect!



That one is: A-1 Auto Parts USA-TN(Lebanon)
615-444-8167 / 615-259-9271

That is the only place in Tennessee showing VX wheels. They want $75 each!

Thanks Xist, I'll check out car-part.com.

I ended up ordering aftermarket taillight lens/housings, Depo brand, haven't installed yet.

Depo are top notch and are DOT so should have no problems with inspections

Good to know. The taillights look the same as OEM except for the DEPO lettering. Can't tell a difference from a few feet away.
