    I have a pair. The housings suck. I hit a tree wheeling and needed a set, figured they would work, but the whole "you get what you pay for" saying holds true! As long as you don't mind being semi blind at night you'll be fine! I plan on retrofitting mine this summer, that'll fix my housing issues :D

    They do look nice though (I know yours is newer, but still)

    That could be just my set though, who knows. They feel cheap compared to the stock ones.

    Well, what do you mean by semi-blind?? Did you reuse your OEM bulbs? Why would the light output be lower? Less reflection?

    Honestly, I'm not too overly concerned about light output from the headlights. They're just for city driving as far as I'm concerned - I'll have off-road lights for when I really need them.

    They just didn't seem to reflect light aswell. I have ZXE bulbs in it right now, the bulbs are bright as hell, but the housings don't seem to focus as well? Maybe that's the best way to describe it.

    No, that makes sense. How long have you had them? I'd be more concerned with moisture problems.

    About a year now, maybe a little less! I did get a little fogging on one late fall, but I haven't gotten any since.
