You get what you pay for.

You may or may not have leakage, easy cracks, dull rings, etc. or they may be awesome....just risky. I just dont like the idea of taking risks with $296 (after shipping and insurance).Of course, buying from ebay, makes it that much more so. I have also been burnt from the site, so i have somewhat of a glass-half-empty outlook on ebay...

If an ebay seller has a 99% buyer satisfaction rating, they didn't get it by defrauding people. I use this to judge when to make purchases or not.

That being said, what is the return policy if you buy these and don't like the quality? What does this mean? -->H1 bulbs for Hi beam and Lo beam are not included.

Do you have to buy something else to get hi-beams or what?

Yes but this only says they are probably honest. I bought a very nice Thornes turnthable from an honest guy in Canada, and it arrived in fourteen pieces. Basically a total loss. Finding all new parts for a vintage 1965 turntable "aint" easy! And because the freight companies wanted to blame the accident on each other (one U.S. and one Canandian). Guess who got f@#ked!

When buying such fragile merchandise as turntables or GLASS HEADLIGHTS, caution is a good thing. Hence my calling it risky. Buying such from a dealer if proved reputable, is much more worry free. :wink

At that price they might be

Yup

Inpros (not oem) with DDE from Bavauto are $400

Too much But they can now aparrently be had much cheaper than I paid (includes shipping at that price) damnit

With the PNP (these have it), install is very easy. Now that I've done it a few times, the old ones removed, new ones in and wired in under an hour.

H1's in a sylvania silverstar bulb (highly recomended) will run you about $40/pair.
