DIY Blackhouse or ebay projectors?

Ive been contemplating for a long time and I really cant decide whether to spend time and DIY the oems or get a set of these projectors.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-02...spagenameZWDVW

I read about the lens popping off but Im sure not all projectors pop off do they? Anyone had these exact set before?

hehehe... How about TYC Projectors? They seem to be the best way to go based on other users here.

BTW, what happened to all those guys selling their TYC headlights? Ive PM people and they never replied..... argh.....

So TYC Projectors are a yay or nay?

it fits perfectly fine.. but the adjusting knobs dont seem to work fully like the OEM ones and also some people say that the beam pattern is worse than the OEM stanely headlights but i couldnt really tell to much cause i had forgotten what my oem beam pattern looks like

Nope accordracing is the cheapest; ebay sells illigimatte clones that are not of the DEPO quality. DEPO quality is near Stanley OEM quality for hafl the price, and JDM "style" authenic headlights impossible to get, since this car was not made for japan market...
