i kno there are several forums on this, but i just wanted to know if these were trustworthy headlights in terms of long lasting and lighting.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33710

in that link, there's one that i can buy now for 168. i don't understand why there are so many on ebay..

can someone give me a heads up on whether the headlights are legit? being scammed isn't fun.

2002hondaackord is correct. Most of these aftermarket projector headlights are mostly for looks only. They yield very little performance.

MOst if not all of them actually uses the H3 headlight bulb and not the 9006. If I remember correctly, the H3 bulb is the one u use in ur fog lights. It's much dimmer. Also, the lens on these lights are just a piece of ****** convex glass thta doesn't do **** for ur beam pattern. You're much better off just DIY ur headlights.

If ur thinking about sticking a HID behind the projector headlights, it won't work. It doesn't fit, even if it does, u'll get about 50% of the HID effectivness and the beam pattern will be all over the place.

you can retrofit an OEM projector into the place of the aftermarket projector if you're going to get HIDs.
