Monday a passing semi kicked up a rock and broke the headlight lense on my 01 Eldorado. Found a used one from a 97', will it fit the 01? Next thing is the guy wants $100 for it. Is that reasonable? Is there any aftermarket or crossovers from another vehicle that will fit. Any help will be appreciated.

Try to acquire the entire assembly, not just the lense. Much easier job than replacing the lense alone for obvious reasons when you take a close look at the assembly. Ebay usually has assemblies from junkyards (right now in fact) and they are often less than the $100 you mentioned. And yes, the assembly from a 97; will fit your 01'.
Best,

If you go used assembly, buy the entire unit but make sure those pesky adjusters aren't rusted and frozen. When they freeze up the soft parts strip out. Stripped out they're useless.
I've learned to keep a supply of good operable spares.

92-97 Seville headlamp capsules are the same. You will have to remove the capsule for the Seville headlamp assemblies
