    They look nice. From experience lighting is a definite "get what you pay for" situation though. Hopefully another member has tried them.

    I have them. Not bad. My wife got them for me for Christmas, not realizing I wanted the Morimoto XB LED Headlights. I would upgrade the bulbs they come with. I didn't go led but just put some better ones in and they work fine. Realize they are cheap, and I would get some lens protectors for them. They help them from yellowing out and protect the cheap lens from rocks.

    Ya I want the Morimotos also but I can’t spend 1k. If you get a chance can you post a few photos of them installed on your rig? Was this last x-mas?

    If you are setting Alpharex, get the Pros. The regular ones are junk.

    I do see these as an option now. They do have the level adjuster which is a nice feature. Like the look of the Spec-D better still

    whats the term for these new style lights with the drl that are the lines and zig zags?

    im guessing this will be an unpopular opinion but i feel like they are going to quickly go the same way as the halo lights of 5-10 years ago. they started on the high end cars and looked decent, and then showed up on some mid range cars, but they quickly became available as aftermarket options on vehicles they didnt come stock on, at which point they became tacky and dated on even vehicles that they came stock on. at first i liked them but now as i see more and more, they are already starting to look like a fad. JMHO and no offense meant..

    Hold onto things when you pull em off.
    My guess is most of these aftermarket headlights will only last 5 years if your lucky and get a decent set
