Does anyone here have any experience with non GM headlights for the Deville? Are they as good as the originals? If not what are the drawbacks?

================================
if you are asking about the actual headlight housing -
I would use great caution if you are considering cheap aftermarket units -

they may fit OK -
but they might not perform as well -

if the reflectors aren't EXACTLY the same as OEM -
they might not focus the light properly -

now - the REAL question -

WHY? - what's wrong with your headlights?

My headlight have these cracks on them. As for the light reflections you mentioned, I have projectors retrofitted so it shouldn't really matter or should it would you say?

If you retrofit projectors into the housings, the reflectors won't be doing anything.

so - what do you want to do -

do you want to simply get rid of what you have now -
and go back to the stock halogen bulb system -

or do you want to try to replace the cracked lens
on your existing - modified - set-up

Aftermarket light assembly parts usually don't interchange with OEM housing parts.
