Parts for my 5th Gen 2001 Prelude

Guys I bought headlights from ebay to replace my foggy factory lights, is that a bad choice? would water leak in? I got it from under 100 bucks and wanted to install it and put on xenon lights, suggestions?

i wanted my car to look better n' drive better with the limited funds I have

I also got JDM fog lights replacements and a short shifter for the lude. any body with short shifters on theirs?

Re: Parts for my 5th Gen 2001 Prelude

it depends on which headlights you bought, if you bought depos then you are good to go.

and most people either have the true short shifter made by PSPEC or the adapter made by DC Sports, Fidanza, etc.

The PSPEC install is a PITA. Good luck.

yeahh i think those are the ebay lights everyone doesn't like

you should return it if you can and just clean the oxidation yourself with wetsand, polish, etc... theres some headlight restoration kits too

why doesn't anybody like those lights? i think they would look good with the 6k bulbs in 'em. is it just personal taste or are they poor quality?

Re: Parts for my 5th Gen 2001 Prelude

I got my headlights on ebay, just a little different style. Ive heard that after 6months they start to get weathered and get dingy. I didnt take the chance I had them wet sanded and clear coated when I got my paint job.
