    The ones I got on ebay are made by Depo. They are very high quality and do not leak or fog. I've also heard good things about the seller "revotec".

    I would avoid ebay headlights other than the ones listed above. There have been many folks who had problems with theirs.

    I have some from revotek... Have absolutely no complaints, I think I picked mine up for like 129 or something like that a while back. As far as I'm concerned its worth that to not try to do it myself... just sell your stocks later and the price is def worth it

    search around, tons of people have purchased them.

    BHLM (search if you dont know what that means!) is way cheaper, funner, and you will get better leak resistance doing it this way. every OEM headlight setup i have taken apart and resealed w/ the original sealant and no extra silicone has never leaked...i read weekly of egay black headligths leaking...

    I ordered blacked out headlights off of Ebay last summer and although they were high quality they leaked. Took almost a cup of water out of the passenger light. Resealed them with silicone and they been fine since. Wish I could remember who I bought them from but I cant. Sorry!

    I had some revotek eBay lights on for a while. Looked good, didn't leak, but I did notice that the light distribution was not as good as stock. The aftermarkets had some hot spots, and it dimmed somewhat on the outer edges of the pattern. Not dangerous light pattern issues mind you, just noticable to me.

    I ended up taking them out after finding a great deal on a set of the 09+ TRD tinted lights. The black HLs look better IMO, but I'm good for now with a set of factory sealed tinted HLs.
