    It's on www.neweggmall.com I made a post a week ago or so about them. Installed... look great. Only thing worth mentioning is the indicator lights are painted flat also (which I actually wanted).

    So far mine haven't fogged, another member has them.. and they haven't either. However I'm in AZ for take it for a grain of salt. All you have to do is put a bead of silicon sealant around the seal, and you're fine. I was going to, but I inspected them and honestly, they're sealed extremely well already. I have no prob's recommending them myself.

    The ones that used to be on newegg or anything using the factory lights... when doing the BHLM they will not reduce any lighting output unless you paint the reflectors themselves (the 'cup' type deal immediatly around the light). My turn signals were painted, and of course are a lot 'dimmer' than stock for that (though honestly they were to F'n bright to start with). The actual headlight themselves.... perfectly fine... no reduction.
