I'd like to know for sure before I drop $150 on something I might have to return. I e-mailed them but haven't received a reply.

I'm glad you just got it, funny thing is this guy sells the same headlight under a different description for $30 more.

Also don't worry about emailing them, you also might want to call them, but the 2007 lights should be the same

I just called the parts department at my dealer and he said that the part numbers are the same for the 06-07s.

whatever you do, avoid "spyderbone" on ebay. he tried to scam me when i bought a pair of depo's w/ white reflectors. i recieved a pair w/ amber reflectors instead and he changed the pictures on the auction to show amber reflectors as well. luckily i took some screenshots just to be safe and he's finally giving me a RMA.

i emailed "makotoautotrends" the other day asking, "these have clear reflectors not amber correct? do they come in unopened original depo packaging?" and he replied, "Yes they will be in brand new condition." He didnt' really answer my question so does anyone know if they are clear or amber reflectors?

For some reason I actually like the amber look better. What did you think of the quality of the lights?

i recieved a large depo box and inside there were 2 smaller boxes for each headlights. one of the smaller boxes was already open. the headlights still had the protective plastic and caps but upon closer inspection i noticed some scruff marks here and there and the gasketing was off. it seemed like it was a return item to me. in regards to the quality however, it seemed to be just as nice as oem. although i have heard of depo's having peeling problems. read the thread here http://forums.gen7accord.net/viewtopic.php?t=3360

Bought a pair last month from them, left headlight's turn signal hole was too small so i drilled it a bit, improved overall look of the car. And I think they have both clear and amber. Hope that helps, guys. Good luck!

For those that bought the Depos, are they easy to install? Do you reuse the bulbs in the stock lights?? Or is everything integrated and you just have to plug the new ones in?

Thanks

i havent recieved it yet but its pretty easy. I use to have the projector black housing ones. They were easy to install. 5 or 6 bolts and removing the bumper and your set. the housings should all be the same so you can just plug it in and your set, and yes you reuse your bulbs.

Has anybody changed out the bulbs for something brighter? My last car was a Lexus IS 350 and it had HIDs, so getting used to the crappy halogen light again sucks!
