If you search around, the general consensus is "ebay" lights suck. Several threads with people talking about how they went back to stock or did a proper retrofit because the ebay lights put out less light with worse focus than stock.

Yeah bought some LED bulbs from DNA motoring in City of Industry,Ca. Do some research before you buy from them. I the bulbs I bought didn't fit and when I tried to return them they offered me free replacements and a refund if I gave them an "excellent" rating on eBay. So I did, and said thank you. But instead of getting a refund I asked to use that towards some LED license plate bulbs instead. They also told me that I can keep the other bulbs, and didn't have to send them back. So I'm supposed to get free bulbs, plus license plate bulbs coming right...wrong they send me the license plate bulbs, but not the other bulbs. Here's another thing, they don't fit either... They're too long. So I email them and now they are telling me to send both sets of bulbs back for a refund. So I call...and start asking the guy about getting the right bulbs sent to me, the guy only knows from a chart what the number of the bulbs are...shoot I already knew that!!! I ask "is there anyone there that can help me that actually knows which bulbs actually fit for my application? And the guy says, "we don't have a 2012 Tacoma here to test every bulb that is in that truck". Duh? I know that but through customer feedback like mine, you would think they would make some notes on the products that they sell right? NO! So I say I don't want a refund! I just want the right bulbs! He tells me to send the bulbs back and go buy them from someone else!!!! What company tells customers that? So I ask to speak to a manager, guess what? He is the manager!!! So I ask to speak to the owner? Guess what? He's unavailable! Then he tells me that he's gonna end the call as I was not satisfied with the answer that he gave me... Don't buy from them!!! After looking more on line I came across a number of customers who had the same experiences as I did. I should have looked them up first instead of going by "excellent" "Five star" ratings, because I got sucked into giving them one of those ratings on eBay before this whole fiasco! Beware of DNA motoring! They don't only sell bulbs!!!
