Most glass housings use H1 bulbs. Might as well get HIDs. They're cheap now.

What's the matter with HID's and plastic headlights? I've never really heard why it isn't good?

It spreads the light all over place and is incredibly blinding. I can't stand it when people do it.

Aren't DJ auto headlights from DDM glass? I've been thinking about getting a set of DJ autos with some angel eyes from DDM rather than the Depo's just because I've never thought of the plastic ones to hold up too well in the long run.

lol the depos are glass too...

moogles, stop looking on ebay. Get either apexcone or DEPO glass/ellipsoid/projector/whatever you wanna call it headlights. They will use a different type of bulb than your stock shitboxes.

You have to buy the entire light. The lens wont work.
