eBay headlights

are eBay headlights worth the money or just garbage? i'm down with the jdm 1-piece lights but are hard to come by, so how about some knock-offs! anyone with experience on eBay parts? here's the link if interested...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...link:middle:us

input will be gladly wanked on...

Re: eBay headlights

I had a pair of no name eBay headlights on my 6th gen civic and condinsation/water got in them and made them look like crap. But that was years ago and for a civic. But personally I probably won't buy eBay headlights again. But if other people have had good luck with them I'd say go for I guess.

I've had the same ones for about 4 or 5 months and they work great and look good. They haven't given me any problems yet.

And just so you know the lens cover is plastic not glass!

but they work good. If plastic headlights are good enough for a Nissan Titan then they are good enough for me.

Re: eBay headlights

i think they're cheaper on passwordjdm.com, i could be wrong though. Honestly I would just get the ebay ones. You're paying over $100 more for 3 lines across a glass housing. Worth it? you decide.

Re: eBay headlights

I have a few questions for you guys that rocking these knock off's. Im seriously considering getting them.

1. Are the inner lights Day time driving lights like on the true JDM ones or high beams like the USDM spec's? Please Please say high beams.

2. What size are the bulbs for both low and high/day time lights? Please say 9006 for lows, cause i have HIDS already.

Re: eBay headlights

they're direct replacement lights and you use the stock bulb stuff. If you have HID's one of the fake JDM look-a-like headlights on ebay has projectors in them, which would be good for the HID's
