I wouldn't buy from ebay, but they should specify if there are for xenon lights or halogen.

The ebay rings are of poor quality and will probably fail extremely fast. Look at the Umnitza Orion V2 or Umnitza Orion Lite angel eyes.

Actually, our Orion lite are the same price as what you see on EBay.
The Orion V2 may be going on sale very shortly

What if three sets in a row fail? Then you will be paying more for that then just doing it right the first time and getting the Umnitza rings. Take my word and it comes from experience on my end.

Your link is brokeh so dunno if you're going with LED(good) or CCFL(bad) which is what I have, rumor has it that in cold weather it dims out And takes time to ignite but I have yet to experience any issues with them besides that they do get slightly dim
You barely notice it
And hey for 19.99 shipped I couldn't complain
How ever umnitza is great for angel eyes but you get what you what you pay for
