    Mine have been broken for quite some time and only up until recently, I haven't really thought about a different way of mounting them to the core support. I have ideas now, but it is obviously a bit late into the game. My stock ones are just about done and have definitely seen better days, maybe it's time to replace them. Upon searching and not expecting stellar pricing for some I actually did happen to stumble upon some which already come in BHLM for decent pricing. They are made, or sold, something, through a company called OEMassive based out of Hacienda Heights, CA. Anybody know of this company and if they are any good? Total for these would be $238 roughly for the pair. Free shipping.

    OEMassive BHLM ones:

    Alternatively, there is always DEPO, which I can pick up for $216 for the pair, but the kicker is that they are not BHLM. Don't know how well sealed they would be either. Then again, I don't know how well sealed they would be from either company.

    These are the DEPO's:

    someone had a review on the OEMassive BHLM ones and the turn signal bulb melted the housing. But the seller made it right and refunded money.

    Interesting. Those turn signal bulbs DO get really really hot. I'm wondering if they have improved their design since. I'm also wondering if anyone else has had an experience with them before.

    It was me. It was only about a month ago. The housings melted around the turn signal bulb in less than 2 days.
