I have DEPO HID's..I think they are great. THey have never fogged once and the fit was good. The ZKW's are higher quality, but the DEPO's are fine..

only compaint I have with my current (when I say current, I mean old because I have ZKW's sitting in my basement waiting for my fender to get fixed) depo's is they don't fit exactly like oem. The clip where the corner light slides into broke on first install on both lights. had to rig up some brackets to keep them in. and in general, I don't think they look like the quality of the zkws without the on.

You have to stretch them over to get them to fit?

At least they'll be water tight! :nana
