Need to replace entire headlights on my 2002 Maxima

I don't know if these will fit?? It says they don't fit factory HID xenon lights?? I don't know if that's what I have?? I would assume it's whatever the factory put it when they made the car. Does it even matter if I'm changing the whole entire thing?(mine are busted and cracked completely) will these work with my car?? And if so are they easy to install? Please I need advice I'm a woman and don't know much about cars . Here's the link to the ones I'm looking at buying if they will work??

You dont want those, they are supposed to be much less effective than the stock headlights you had already. Just grab some used headlights, use ebay or a website called carpart that lets you search any junkyard in your area.

Yeah I've checked every junkyard in my state and no one has any... Nebraska... There ain't much around here in general lol. I've looked on eBay and these are the cheapest I've found... I didn't know they sold used ones? Do I have to search specifically for used ones to be able to see those buying options? Thanks so much in advance. I really need news ones these look awful but I can't see paying like 250+ for each one which seems to be all I'm finding. Thanks .

I know these probably aren't preferred but for the sake of saving money... If I do get these will they fit or go in? Or they don't even match?

The headlights you found not only will suck but also wont fit the bulbs your car uses, 2002-2003 maximas use HID/xenon bulbs and the headlights you found say they wont work with those. Im sure it could be modified but again, ive heard nothing but bad things. try typing “2002 maxima headlight oem” and using the filter to accept only used items, youll get a ton of buying options. Yeah, theyre expensive with each hl costing on average $100, but be thankful this isnt back in the day when they were going for like 2 grand each lol

keep looking, and you can even find them used around here, and + 1 on using a computer it is almost the only way to search for these things,
