    Any history of leaks or fogging up?

    You may want to consider applying another layer of silicone on ebay headlights IMO.

    Yes, reseal them.

    Mine fogged up after 3 months. Light output isn't going to be the best either.

    I have the same headlights. Everything is very easy except for the one screw that attaches by the fender. Takes a little more effort, but just unclip some tabs on the wheel well and you'll be golden.

    As for the wiring, I'm a retard when it comes to that.

    I think i figured out the wiring thanks to google. Not too difficult once I understood what's going on. But, How do I get the dust cover back on the rear of the housing after putting the HID bulbs in?

    Stock with the dust cover on.

    HID's in. Can't slide dust cover over wires. Am I missing something?

    Not sure since I havent dealt w/ that directly. But I would say that if it doesnt fit over the wiring, either open up that hole more or cut a slit in it so that you can slide everything through.
    But definitely post up pics! I'm deciding between Black or Color matched for my lights and your pics will definitely help since we're both Idigos :)

    yeah with the HIDs ull have to cut that rubber piece a little bit, i just cut mine a little and pushed the bulb thru so it cut itself, if that made any sense? but they look great! and the wiring isnt hard at all
