    Hey Y'all,

    I want to order some new headlights this week.

    #1 thing I need is something that is going to be bright and well lit. These stock ones just aren't cutting it on my early morning commutes Monday-Thursday.

    I really like the look of these, but I have heard that not many people dig projectors.

    But I see a lot of people running these

    Like I said I like the first ones more, but I don't know how good they are with the brightness and how well they will light up the road.

    From what I have read, most people just dont like the cut-off line with ebay projectors. Thats all I know of. But if your throw some hids in them, Im sure they will be alot better then stock. But Idk how good or bad those projectors are?

    I say get the regular black or clear headlights off of ebay. The stock ones are horrible at night. I cant see shit with mine and the lense are cleaned up. When I ride in my friends 2nd gen with stock headlights its atleast 5x as bright as mine.
