    I am looking at these headlight sets on ebay! They are both around 180.00. I would feel better about buying them than sticking my originals in the oven. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts or ever bought these on ebay.
    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

    The biggest thing the BHLM mod has going for it is low-cost - if all goes well you are just paying for black spraypaint and adhesives. If you are going to spend money on replacement headlight assemblies, might as well get the halo projectors.

    buddy has those. I put mini h1 projectors in them. Make sure you add a couple of layers of telfon around the where the bulbs screw in or even weather seal putty around them.

    Ebay headlights are pieces of shit. Just want to be clear about that. They leak, they fog, they fall apart. I've yet to see a single set hold up.

    BHLM and get a set that looks the way you want for $20 and a few hours of your time.

    do it yourself. Its really not that hard. It seems sketchy in retrospect but its not bad at all. Just make sure you put the headlights on cardboard or something in the oven and you will be fine. If they leak, just use a little bit of the OEM sealant around the outside.

    I had a set for my Pathfinder that was probably the same brand (materials appear the same and had the same clear/amber option), they held up will on my Pathfinder over 2 years but the light output was worse...
