Need Suggestions!

Long story short, I finally received my tax return in the mail and I am left with a decent amount of money to upgrade my faded Pre-LCI halogens. I have been eyeing the Depo V3 F30 style headlights for quite some time now, I was hoping if anyone who has these headlights can share their feedback on them regarding build quality, fogging, beam/cutoff quality, etc. I am also still open to other headlight suggestions, you are more than welcome to post your aftermarket headlights and a small review of what you think of them!
Cheers

I did see the thread on them and they also are a pair of headlights that I would consider. The angel eyes on them are really unique, but my only concern is the people complaining about them digging up and stuff. Ultimately which ever pair of headlights I get I plan to add an extra layer of sealer before I switch out to LED H7s. Im still very inclined to get the depo V3s because you get the clear corners, AEs, and a projector. Better off than stock halogens

I haven't seen the new f30 style depo, but generally depos have been good and reliable for many users here. I'm sure they'd continue that quality in their newest product.

Also, most LED H7 kits I've seen are pretty weak. Either spend some money on a good bright LED, or just stick with HIDs once you have the projectors.

**UPDATE**
After waiting for months and looking through forums, I ordered the DEPO V3 F30 style angel eye headlights on eBay from seller fishcake. Along with the headlights, I ordered a pair of Philips X-tremeUltonon 6000k LED H7s for the low beams to match the AEs. Will post a full review regarding build quality, projector cutoff, light output, etc. once I get both items installed.
