They look pretty real to me. If they say Stanley on 'em they are the real deal.

Go tell that guy to go outside and play hide and go fawk himself.

Correct; real ones have those 2 horizontal lines.

Fake ones don't.




The ones you posted in the other thread are FAKE tho;

They look legit, I have the same ones. You'll see 'Stanley' and some part number next to it in the lower inside corner (meaning nearest to the nostrils)

Re: fake jdm headlights or real? just bought them today

Who ever offered you that price is prolly setting you up so it seems like they are fake. Maybe he's trying to scam you and the other responses are from the same guy with different e-mail addresses.

Re: fake jdm headlights or real? just bought them today

Just remembered, I got mine for $50 from a guy who was ripping apart a Prelude in his garage to use the H22 stuff for his CB7 Accord. Not really a junkyard find, but a find from a junked lude nonetheless. One of them had a broken tab and a big melted spot on the lens, luckily I found the side I needed to have a perfect set on here for $85 shipped U.S. to here in Canada.

So even more amazing that you got yours in such good condition.
