    for $30 i'd just buy them and see how they look. If they look like crap, then its not to much money waisted.

    If that's the price range OP wants to stay in, go down to Walmart and buy a pair of GE "High Output" sealed beams. I had those on my 86 Toyota. Same part number as an early first gen. Huge improvement over stock, and was well under 30 bucks.

    Next step up is a set of Hella H4 conversions. Best thing you can get short of HID retrofits.

    i just put these on my truck and installed a HID kit also, they look great but the light output is horrible, verge of not being able to see horrible. Cars will be able to see you but you wont be able to see the road. if you are looking for a projector lens stay away from the ones like these, like Paranoid said these are pretty much a look alike. i will post some pics of them later to show the output.
