    Mine are very similar. Also bought from k2motors. Just a hint, check for them on eBay on the k2motors store. Way cheaper if they list them on there.

    I have them. I haven't had any problems with them. I hope to replace them sooner or later with real retrofited projectors in the stock headlights.

    Get them from eBay. Your stock headlights put out better lighting.

    Hebert- what part of La are you from? My momma was a Hebert. We could possibly be related, though I know there's many different branches of that tree.

    I ordered some similar to those that you have coming to you, except mine are HID. They are brighter then stock. I have heard reviews that they might leak and all that. Eventually perhaps I will do that HID conversion on the stock eyes. For now the Halos look soo freaking good.

    That's not the issue. The problem are the rubber boots that go over the back of the headlights.

    Same here, except one of my halos got dim. Never really liked the light output of those either. Had to run with the fog lights on all the time.

    On the bright side, the fit on them is perfect and I never had fogging issues.

    Now I'm running these and am happier with the light output.

    Install is easy. Taking out the originals is a bitch though.

    Suck suck suck, everything sucks in some way to some extent, not sure what people expect. The lo beams would be better with an H7 HID yep, but brights are brighter than oem IMO. What's big deal using fogs with low beams? The fogs suck if you don't H10 HID them too. How does a projector go out? Put a new H7 bulb in it. No issues with fogging or halos either. I have used them for 30 miles every morning on the way to work for over a year without issue. It was worth the 190 shipped IMO. Do it and keep your oems to BHLM or projectorize or just go back with when bored or just to be in the approved equipment club.

    BTW, the bug shield sucks too and so does the TRD skid and the 5100s and the Hellas and the WO seat covers and the smittybuilt light bar and all the seals that leak at less than 80k and the Duratracs and my 18" rims and the price of the gas it drinks and the 2011 grille and and and..............................

    More like preferences and attitudes about another's preferences more than a standards thing, lol. Higher standards would be a good thing to start with at the factory. Wanted black headlights and not chrome to go with the rest of the black trim and save the oems = preference.
