Thoughts on these headlights?

Didnt want to fork over $900-1200 for OEM lights. Found these for cheap. Single connection just like factory. What do you think? Im going to install and see how they look/work tomorrow.

The lenses look cracked, but they arent. I left the protection film on them.

ebay! you'll find that the beam pattern is not good and that the light actually shakes as you drive. Lots of post about these lights on here. Search for "ebay headlight", the thread has like a trillion post or something close to that.

I knew they wouldnt be OEM quality, but I didnt have the cash to fork out for even Depo lights. As long as these dont fill with water, Ill get my moneys worth.

Do you have any photos of these installed? What are they like at night?

I'm interested in buying a pair, are they the same as the ones in the thread you linked to earlier?

Photos are a few posts above. They are the same ones. I am waiting on my car to come back from the shop to post up some pattern pics for those interested.
