Anyone have these EBAY Headlights?

Well, my wife was all set on buying me wheels and 35" tires for Christmas, but I told her if she spent very much money on me, I'd be pissed. So in a last minute panic on what to get me for less money, she bought me some of these headlights off EBAY. Does anyone have them, are they any good? My OEM headlights are fogged so its a great thing, just wondering if im going to have issues with the install/function. One of the corners had a crack on the back plastic but its nothing major and i think a bit of silicone will be fine, no need to return

I have them too, they turned out really nice, but I would reseal them just too be sure, that's what I did on mine, but the corners are not that smoked, they look kinda clear in the sunlight, just look at them in my sig

If you're just replacing your original lenses due to yellowing/clouding/fogging, why not use something like the 3M Headlight Restoration kit? I just did mine today, and they turned out fantastic.

Thanks for the input guys! As for a headlight restoration kit, that WAS the plan but I never got around to it and since I have aftermarket tails i might as well get some aftermarket headlights also

They'll be yellow in less than a year if you didn't apply a clear coat. I used the 3m kit too and it doesn't come with a clear coat... I'm just going to buy new ones from rockauto

I got the clear ones that aren't smoked they look and work great. My friend has the exact same ones as you with 8k HIDs they look pretty good. You should be very satisfied with them.

Oh yeah, BIG TIME. I had to drop them at least 2 feet, they could probably come down more but until someone flashes me i'll try the level i have them at. I haven't messed with left and right adjust, too cold to justify

I just bought a set of these off of ebay...
they really are cheaply made.
I like the look...
but the chrome reflector on one has a bunch of blemishes in it.
As if it weren't clean of lint before the chrome was applied.
Maybe it's just from the batch my seller has...
but who knows... could be a common thing with other sellers.

So I was going to return them...
But the seller offered a refund of $ 20.
plus some H4 and corner bulb hyper lights shipped to me.
Was a fail on the seller's part...
because the seller's listing title said the bulbs were included.
but they claim that was a typo error.

So I decided to accept the offer.
Hopefully they'll last a year or two before they might fail...
maybe I'll get lucky and they'll survive longer.

I also bought these JDM tail lights...



and they don't plug n play like the seller listed for my model year.
I think they are defective and have a ground fault..
but I dunno... and am requesting refund or exchange on them.

This ebay aftermarket crap seems to be a hit or miss deal
at least with my experience with my past purchases of similar items.
