Because the Sable has orange reflectors integrated into the front bumper. On the Taurus, they’re integrated into the side of the headlight housing (same with the Gen 6, actually).

If you read into it, it says nothing about the front reflector actually being orange, as long as it has an orange light

Most problems are the result of a loose nut connecting the steering wheel to the pedals.

Pennsylvania law is irrelevant - we’re talking about federal DOT regulations. On the Taurus, that means reflectors in the headlights, and that means almost all third parties are going to produce DOT compliant lights.

I bought both a left and right headlamp assembly for my 2000 SE from Rock Auto. They are different manufacturers (one is TYC) but the both look identical. Both of them work well and neither of them were expensive. Well worth it.

Yeah, but those still just look like the original.

Most problems are the result of a loose nut connecting the steering wheel to the pedals.

Okay, been thinking about this, and I wonder if its possible to dismantle and swap around parts between the headlight assemblys. Say, the black housing from DNA/Speed Daddy/whatever, and the internals from OEM. Is this possible without ruining everything?

Message Evolution AutoWerks on Facebook, he builds custom projector head lamps out of the stock ones for around 500 bucks. That's your best bet because not only does it look cool, but he gives some customization options AND the light output is dramatically improved.
