    Looking
    I just ordered these headlights last week so they should be here anytime. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-2011-T...ps=63&clkid=165987858443255478&_qi=RTM1084479

    After reading what it comes with it say it comes with both headlights led halo lights high and low beam bulbs etc. However It also says it is preassembled for plug n play. Can someone explain what that is exactly and if I have all the accssesorys for using these as shown on the add. Or do I have to buy like adapters or something? Im not very intellegent with halos since Im new to the HID world..

    You shouldn't need anything.

    Says plug and play, so that should mean literally, unplug your old lights, plug in the new ones and that's in as far as wiring is concerned.

    FYI, those aren't HID's... They'll be normal halogen bulbs.

    EDIT: There are 2 videos on how to install on the Ebay link you listed...

    You'll want to see what bulb type those lights hold, the the LED's will need to be spliced into your running lights, also with your halo's. Everything else such as low beam and high beam you'll need to find the right bulbs

    X2. You also might want to throw another bead of sealant around the housing lens cause Ebay lights are known to collect moisture after some time.

    Brock has a good observation about the 3 wires bundled neatly... That Ebay ad might be very very very misleading in that they are plug and play for the headlights, directions and marker lights to work (meaning they're legal), but it does not appear that the halos or the strip above the headlights will be plug and play and might come with those crappy vampire clips for the halos.

    I watched the install video and the wires for the halos and the strip above the lights are not touched at all, but they're magically on at the end of the video.
