So why did UPS just ring my doorbell and give me a big box?

    WTF, theres headlights in this box all nicely wrapped. :rant: The tracking number is still fu*ked up and i been blaming this ebay guy for nothing. I feel bad now because of this shit. It seems it was UPS's fuck up and not the ebay seller. My Depot headlights come from UPS tomarrow so now i have two pair of headlights and i need to decide which one to keep. Theses black ones look similar to ART's smokes so i may keep them and send the clear depots back to blue oval.

    Wow, hmm.

    Low Beams- 9006
    High Beams 9005

    Drop top is right about which ones look better. In person they look so much better compared to the depots big black projector lenses. The whole outside cover is glass though which scary compared my current plastic ones.

    Be careful with them...my g/f moved the box mine were in and one broke so i couldn't sell them. I like the glass better though...they were pretty well made compared to the plastic ones. Just make sure you seal the creases/seams with clear silicone.

    You didn't give the seller negative feedback did you? Never jump the gun if you are going to bid on eBay.

    Nice headlights! O0

    no, i havent left any feedback yet.. not for the hids or projectors.

    Anyways, i brought the wrong tool, but i got it working anyway. I just used the jig saw with the shoe off (not suppose to) and cut into the plastic. lol

    edit: fits in perfect with alittle bit of the plastic removed.

    I broke one adjuster clips, but i used a half broken one from the smokes. I might just end up having 3 pair of headlights if i dont sell the smokes rofl.. sad. They are brighter but its hard to get the complete brightness with one side smoked and the other clear. I'll install the depo tomorrow on the left side and see which looks better. So, yea im driving to work tomorrow with 1 smoke and 1 projector :drunk: Also, the low beam is more to the side of the car instead of infront and the high beam lights up stop signs and tall trees.. WTF. It looks to be aimed properly, but the light ins't spread correctly infront of the car which means ill fuck with it after work.

    Beware if i do sell theses smokes you'll need your own adjuster bullet thingies.


    edit: Tell me this ins't fishy.. hes no longer a registered ebay user
