    They look like junk to me. HI/Low on the same projector tells me to move on.

    Pic of the front and rear look to be of a different headlamp.

    The ad states that it does not come with the bulb and makes no mention of the projector quality or what type of bulb is supposed to be used for it, just that it doesn't come with one.

    I'm going to assume this is going to be meant to use a H4 or similar bulb where dual filament is needed on the bulb, but I can't imagine the projector is very good quality. Given the ads construction, all of the emphasis of seems to rely solely on its gimmicky lighting rather than where a headlight should actually matter.

    If you want a quality rig which is already blacked out and using the latest and greatest tech, go for Morimoto, or the Alpharex headlights where quality is distributed equally in both visual and functional optics.

    Buyer beware on these lights.

    I think the layout of the light is cool. The “LED” strip looks cheap and tacky, too white and thick. Projector is probably not up to par. But hey, at least they are black. :rofl:
