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

well i am about to stick some hids in a set of ebay projectors. So I will tell you how the light output is. They say the output sucks.

yeah don't get ebay projectors..the output is awful on them..i had them on my car and couldn't stand it anymore..i now have a retrofit which is more expensive but the output is way better..Stock output>those ebay projectors..and they also look better then the ebay ones

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.
