Headlights???
 
SO....... I bought a set of DEPO "brand" headlights for a couple hundred bucks, the arrived in good shape and looked pretty cool until.... I removed the lenses to have a closer look at the "angel eyes" and shattered most of the clips and plastic parts...

my conclusion; Depos are cheap as hell and not what I want on my car. are there any dealers out there that sell good QUALITY glass lights? I saw Dj Auto but they seem like effing junk too. Truner Motors has a set of hellas for 700$+ but that seems a bit much. what do?

Did the angel eye shatter or did the clips for lens shatter?

LOL you must know me! I'm a friggin brute when it comes to the finer points of getting things to fit. I usually force things. the DEPOs lasted about 5 min in my hands. *thmbsdwn*

yea, the hella's are pricey new but the quality is unmatched. Yes that is about the going rate for brand new Hella's.

remember....you get what you pay for.. :-)
