Default Help with an 03 MPV

Hey all,

Fellow Mazda guy here, currently have a blue pro5 but I'm getting a 2003 MPV to tow a small jet boat.

Kudos to PonderosaTX, I read your response to Frenchguy and Im glad I found out that the spark plugs replacement is explained here.

Anyway, I found a white 03 mpv that would look so effing amazing if I could find some black-housing headlights. Unfortunately I have searched ebay up and down and could find nothing and I'm not particularly knowing of any shops that would sell it. I was wondering if by some chance did anyone know if it is possible to do a headlight conversion with the '04 model. I know that I would have to switch out bumpers as well but I don't know if it will fit. Any help?

Also, I used autos.msn.com which usually gauges the reliability of a vehicle very well by using maintenance records over long periods of time. It said that there are very few and infrequent problems with all aspects of the van, is this true?

They are known for ignition coil and alternator problems
Coil boots suck moisture even the newer ones that were supposed to be better
Alternators don't last very long -some very smart engineers put them right into the splash from the right tire and i have not found anybody to tell me an easy way to replace them
Gas mileage sucks too
