    Overall, I am pleased with the product. 102$ Ebay Shipping included. Im still trying to get the DRL lights to come on that came preinstalled in the headlights. Im hoping I can have some decent clarity on the roads, although i know i sacraficed some visibility going with the 12000k (Pink). I think the product itself was ok with quality. The headlights appear to have that china production quality if you know what i mean. The halo chrome circle in the lens appears to be a little off center ect. But I do really enjoy the facelift it puts on the car. Thinking I will purchase another set of HID from another company and go with bright White for more visibilty. I will put more pics up once i get the DRL on in engine bay pics with the ballast installed and what not.

    dam that would look HELLA hot like that low and hellaflush with those rims. andthe color of the hids are hot! i wish Cali wasnt so strict on car modifications because I want strait purple headlights & fogs. i can speak from experience that those "pojectors" are goingto get annoying. there isnt a nice cutoff line. some Hella lights or even the E-code ones would be cleaner. overall it looks really sharp man! I LOVE the color
    Low loud lovin it!

    I hate to say it, but those housings will not last you long. I did an H4 conversion on mine a long time ago, with those eBay housings and it was awful. Also, I just threw out a set of those HID lights. They came with my girlfriend's car and they were awful. Couldn't see a damn thing, and half the time they wouldn't light up. Switched to some Silverstar halogens and will never look back.

    The sealed units in my 3g were so pitiful that I tried a couple of Sylvania XtraVision from the junkyard (call me cheapo). For $2 a piece, it was the most bang for the buck EVER. They are easy to spot; they have written "performance" in the glass below the brand.

    I would do an H4 (euro) replacement possibly with autopals. I miss the sharp cutoff pattern of the low beams.
    If it ain't broke... I fix it!

    Thanks for all the feedback guys! I knew I was going to task a risk at quality of light intensity, but not so much as the product itself. You all are right though nd concur with my inital reactions to the housings... Just straight China. I will use them for aethetics for now. I really love seeing the purple though! Idk they do the job for now.

    Anyway is this what ur talking about

    I updated the headlights on my 1983 sedan. I used 4x6" H4 Glass Headlights Conversion Halogen Semi housing and H4 9003 LED Cool White 6500K bulbs. Very easy install and well worth it.
