I don't know if it's the light in the picture or what, but they look kind of cheap/ricey imo.

Sorry - I was looking on bavtoys.com at the Depo vs. ZKW ellipsoids and i can't find any difference between them except for about $225. Is there a performance difference or just personal preference?

zkw was an oe supplier to bmw, depo is a cheap Taiwanese knock-off, decent performance, but there is a noticeable difference in build quality, depos are made of cheap plastics, adjustments are plastic and typically break quite easily and the seals are cheap too which leads to condensation on the inside of the lights, if money is an issue go with depos, if you can hold off and want to purchase something that is reliable and you won't have any issues go with the zkw's

thanks shahab for the quick reply.

Another question though, do the depo ellipsoids use a glass or plastic lense?
Also is it a true PnP or is there wire splicing involved?

I'm pretty sure you can buy a pnp harness for a couple bucks extra, and depos use plastic, zkws use glass
