HID Projector advice needed

I've been researching HID retrofits, kits, etc, and I'm trying to decide between the morimoto HID projectors and some ebay projectors:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/02-05-BMW-E4...-/280980606977 pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A2004|Make%3ABMW|Model%3A325xi|Submodel%3ABase|En gine+ +Liter_Display%3A2.5L&hash=item416bbfd001&vxp=mtr

I read the thread warning against ebay projectors, but can anyone find what may be wrong with this kit?

Thanks.
