    So I was considering buying some blacked out headlights off of ebay. I know that some people have had very good luck, where as others experienced some major fogging issues. If you could let me know which ones you bought, and how well they are working, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Thanks Nate. Yeah I have always been one to get a bargain when possible, but also am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Some things you just dont want to cheap out on.

    If you are going to get the BHL from ebay look for seller revotec he sells the headlights that do not fog up. Quite a few people from this site have gotten them from that seller.
