Otherwise, you're going to probably have the same issues with the replacement Depo lights.
What is higher quality though? Spending like $2k for the OEM headlights is pretty much out of the question for me. I'm not sure how well this return is going because now he wants ME to pay to return the defective light, despite me being down without a set of working lights now he's still not willing to send me lights. He wants me to PAY more to get a second set and then return the 1st. WTF?

These lights would be fine if I could have someone reseal them. Me and my buddy are going to fix the wiring for the on again off again drivers signal, but this is a pretty shitty/stressful experience. So much for any kind of real customer support I suppose? I'd be pretty embarrassed to give such poor customer support myself.
