Click projector retrofit in my sig. Do that which costs about $150 if you go lower end with the ballast and then get Umnitza Orion Lite angel eyes for $70. Far better than ebay stuff.

this discussion can go for a while, I do however, agree with solidjake. ebay or any other aftermarket (depo, etc) are not worth the price becauase quality is cheap and output is horrible.

yes, they may look good, but its main purpose which is to increase visibility is just not there, mind as well keep your halogens.

to natesantacroce: I have a pair of cheap headlights with angel that were given as a gift but never install them, PM if interested.

Really!? This whole time I thought they were just for looks no to actually increase visibility

for you that might be the case, but don't you rather have better visibility and same great oem look at cheaper price and better quality by doing a simple retrofit? but again that's your opinion and decision, so more power to you.

I don't even know what's going on anymore I thought hids gave you better visibility and that's what the retrofit was for, not angel eyes. Anyways back to the op's question. If your on a budget eBay ones are fine , but if you have more money I guess buy the better ones there must be a reason why everyone loves them. Whatever you do don't go near ccfl ones.

because ebay ones dont have lifetime warranty as my orion v2 have. and ebay ones are prone to have leds go out
