HELP! Thoughts on these Headlights?

I have been searching for the cheapest way to get rid of those amber reflectors without using vinyl overlays. I came across these on ebay and they are really cheap, and have free shipping. However there is no picture of what they look like on a car or any info about who makes them etc. Any thoughts or knowledge on these would be greatly appreciated.

Being able to see isn't important in a headlight. Much more important is to get rid of those stupid required amber sidemarkers.

The crap in your link is just that - crap.

dont buy ebay headlights, terrible quality and probably wont fit well. I think vinyl overlays are your best bet.

Awful. Agree with E92ML, get a vinyl overlay.

You already have OEM xenon headlights, so getting these would be a huge downgrade for you.

AmberPhobia is really too much.

That somone would be willing to degrade their visabilty to delete a color that is known to be helpful in beeing seen.

Amber is there for safety.
