eBay Projectors

I know ive been asking everyone for advice lately, but im really starting to get into my car. I would really like to get projectors and equip them with some nice HID's... So i have started to look on eBay for new headlights, but i have been reading around in other threads and no one seems to like to eBay projectors! Why is this?!? Im looking around on eBay because i dont have the money or "know how" to retrofit my own headlights. Thanks once again everyone

yeah i had ebay projectors for like a month and without an hid kit, just silverstar bulbs, and I went through 4 of them in a month. that's when I switched to tycs and I love em. you don't have to do retrofits yourself btw. talk to 99aznaccord. I think that's the username. of course it's way more expensive than tycs though.

my bulbs only went bad once in the few months i had them..but i probably went threw 15 fuses or so..overall they were just a pain in the a$$..the halos looked farely good..but not worth the money..

if i was you i would just keep OEM, or get a retrofit..if you look in the for sale section the is usually a used set for sale

indeed. you can probably get a used set for under $400. yeah I also went through fuses with the stupid ebay projectors. I had to get some sort of adapter to fix the wiring the stupid things blew. it's just retarded.
