Re: will these fit?

Ask to see what market they are made for. If they're made for the US market they will point the wrong way, which is incredibly annoying from the driver's seat, and even more annoying for those travelling in the opposite direction.

If they do point the wrong direction you'll need to open them up and flip the cutoff shields

Re: will these fit?

I dont have any issues with the light output I can see better than I could before I switched to these. I never use the bright lights, no need. what do you mean about cutoff? the bulbs are 8000K I think they are D2R's cuz they are a little fatter than the D2S

Hmm... I've always heard that the ebay projecters would have a problem with the heat of HIDs... guess not.

Re: will these fit?

Theres a couple different ebay sets, a cheap $180 (i think) set and one that is like $280 and says its "ccfl" or something like that. Supposed to be brighter and maybe actually better than other ebay lights.

Re: will these fit?

I may have got overpriced but I payed around 350 total and im not disappointed with em. I would have rather gotten some type of retro fit but last time I saw some retros they were like 800 bucks and I just dont have that for lights.
