I got my lights install last night. Long Story short:
1)Pretty cheap feel,Cheap plastic and cheap headlight,they shake a lot,again they are cheap made,going over a bumpy road and the lights beam is all over the place,tap the headlight a little and you can see how much they move.
2)for almost $500 dollars i was expecting something a little bit better,guess not.
3)brought the car to a "professional" place to get the lights install.
4)One of the ballast was flickering,it was no good(jlevistreetwerks)offer to send a new one,it will take 3-5 business days or "I" could pay for the overnight.Finally they took some money off for the new ballast i had to buy from the shop installing the lights.
5)We had some minor rain last night,this morning i see some water in the head lights(look at the picture)there's a lot of condensation in the headlights.
6)now the other ballast stop working,so i have only one headlight to drive home tonight.
jlevistreetwerks are close today Saturday 12/10/11. So i will have to wait until Monday to see what they can do or going to tell me.
***UPDATE***
So it looks like i will be sending the defective headlights back. I talked to my mike earlier today and this is what he wants me to do "Remove the headlight from the car remove all of the bulb components so that it's just the housing wiring put the light housing in the oven for about 15-20 mins at 200 degrees this should take care of it best to bake them, and then let them sit outside the car in a dry place for a day or 2 once you've done that shake the light and if water comes out you may need to do it again"

How about the Installation i paid and the time? Like mike from jlevistreetwerks said oh well.Also for more information about this company you can go here http://forums.5series.net/topic/1119...vistreetwerks/. So please Stay away from them or take a chance,a chance that is going to cost you $700+.

Sorry you had to go through such a bad situation.

IMO though, it's more DEPO's fault than anything, because their headlamp assemblies are prone to fogging. How long have you had the headlights on btw?

It's so rare to see a complaint about JLeviSW, because I have had nothing but good experiences with them. They're even a sponsor here.

I had them on for 3-days. I know its not their fault in a way,but the way they tried to solve the problem was very unreasonable,not professional at all.I did some research and there's a couple of complains with BBB and i also found this http://forums.5series.net/topic/1119...vistreetwerks/

Honestly. Save your money.

I hated my depo lights because they were defective and didn't look right.

They aren't full rings. They are just four little leds per ring. They don't look right and half of mine stopped working after a month.

I ended up selling the car and just recently found it locally. Some kid bought it and every day I work I have to drive by it and remind myself not to do that again.

Live with your halogens. Next car you buy make sure to get factory xenons
