Retrofits on Amazon?

So i was browsing Amazon and came across these...

http://www.amazon.com/Toyota-Retrofi...tor+headlights

Already retrofitted headlights for a lot cheaper than i have seen elsewhere. I am assuming they are not the same Morimoto minis H1's but does anyone know anything about these?
Or have them installed?

This is who's making them, I'd give them a call and see what the deal is. Seems legit though, they do sell the h1's already.

All H1 refers to is the bulb style. Those are knockoff projectors-not Morimoto minis. It also looks like crap ballasts. It also looks like they stole pictures of members trucks as well. I would do it right and go with TRS.

That company seems like a bunch of dirt bags. They have pictures advertising 2 trucks that they didn't complete the retrofit for. Hans also doesn't have the H1's, he had the FX-R and then the LS-460's. He also had another company do the work for him, not modifystreet. Completely false advertising. I wouldn't give them any money without knowing who made the projectors and what HID kit came with it. There are a lot of cheap projectors on the market these days.

When i have added up the mini H1s on the website my cost gets pretty close to that 479. but thats prob with my factoring in buying some used headlights (just in case)

I just want something better than the crappy egay and amazon projectors commonly bought.

but the mini H1s are a lot of money while i'm going to school.

Well that seems like a good reason not to buy from them. If they don't even have their picture of the product they are advertising. I'm sure they just got the pictures off google images. but still.. just makes it sketchy.

If i had a great product i would want multiple pictures of the exact product.

I've seen that a lot with shadier companies stealing pics of vehicles from forums to use in ads.
