    I bought a set from Auto and Art on eBay with SAE and DOt stamped on them. So far so good. Hardest part is adjusting them.

    I bought these and they're supposed to arrive friday. I'm not putting in HIDs, just H4s. Think they will be brighter than stock?

    Mine are just like those, and I am running the H4s. Personally I would have preferred them to be brighter, but that may be the bulbs. As for appearance and longevity, I have had them for almost 6 months now and I like them!

    exact same ones i got. they look better than stock too. youll like them, could also get a full 35w hid kit for 40 bucks and youll love them even more. or 80 like mine for 55w haha and they are true 55w. best thing ive ever had at night. also those cheap bulbs you get that you can wire in cant take 12v , i have no clue why, they always burn out. wait these ones dont have that extra little slot.
