    I posted the other day about the BHLM housings that I bought off Ebay.
    Well, DO NOT BUY THEM!! After only 2 days, the turn signal bulbs melted the housings and the bulbs blew. BEWARE!

    Something like that go OEM or don't do it at all. I would never trust any non OEM housing found on Fleabay

    That's unreal, you either bought one of their first sets or they must have been aware of that issue. Hope they don't screw you around to get a refund.

    Sucks to hear about your headlights.
    You should try DIY BHLM on your OEM set.

    Well, just to let everyone know...OEMassive (the seller) sent a full refund to my PayPal. They didn't even require me to send the housings back after seeing the pictures. They are a stand-up company. I hate that I don't yet have black headlights, but I'm satisfied with the outcome.
