Opinion on these headlights

Looking to see peoples opinions on these headlights:
http://www.protuninglab.com/20bmwe903323.html

I understand they're not depo or anything spectacular, But they look stock with angel eyes and projector housings.

I also understand they may leak, the projectors may throw an awful beam, and not plug and play. But honestly for 200 bucks...I can wire them myself, seal em up much better, and could care less if the beam isn't perfect.

Anyone use cheap stuff like this and have experience?

I can't say nothing about the quality etc, but i think you should buy these instead.

These are European style lights. You get rid off the orange reflector. I have notice that many people are trying to cover it etc.

I've been going back and forth between these and the one's I linked. The only reason I might not like these is because my car is silver and I don't know if I like the cleared corners on silver.

Check this link there are few with clear lights.Im sure there is many more if you look forward.I think its better looking without orange corners.

Can't say nothing about quality and light output.Atleast the price isn't high.These would be good for cutting them open and adding bright full led circle angel eyes.

I think car needs to have black kidneys and some mods too if going with black housing.Don't think it look good if car is otherwise stock.
Here is my car Original bmw ksenon lights.For comparison.
