    I am interested in these. How is the light output compared to the OEM lights? It would be cool if you could install a Depo light on one side and your old OEM light on the other and turn them on and take a pic of the light output on a wall.

    I read up on these ebay ones and all i read is bad reviews on the light output.

    they hold up great, you just got to seal them up good. I had one light build up some moisture one winter.

    I got them too. Yes , make sure you seal them with silicone before you install them. I didn't and one fogged up inside. Had to take off and dry it out and sealed it up. No problem since.

    i had both that leaked a LOT of water inside, like a puddle in there, i removed, used a hair dryer and put them in the oven at 250 for 5 mins, then completely sealed the outside edge, and a shot of silicone around where the turn signal bulb sits, just to be sure, so far so good, they look really nice
