Thoughts on these headlights???

I just bought a pair of these headlights but not with the fogs since I already have fogs. My question is, has anyone had any experience with these? If so, what are your thoughts about them and the lighting it gives off? Do I need to get different bulbs oor are these ok. I know sometimes buying stuff like this they maycome with cheap accessories and in this case maybe the bulbs. First time I have ever dealt with aftermarket lighting so I am very new to this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I paid $159.00 for the set without fogs. I feel ya on the retro's though. Like I said I am not at all familiar with lighting mods. So, I am not familiar with those either...LOL

No matter how cheap it is dont buy it.
They are for looks only
Poor performance light output wise
I seen them on the road
Spend $ for the retro you won't regret it.

I had the exact same set a few months ago, sent them back because the output was comparable to holding a flashlight with half-dead batteries out the window.
i actually made a video of them and sent them to the manufacturer to show them how bad they were and they sent me a full refund and payed for my shipping.
if you like them, kudos, but i did the same thing a while back (rip car apart install headlights put car back together, rip car apart uninstall headlights/put old headlight back in put car back together, rip car apart install retrofits put car back together)

i can honestly say its hazardous to use these on the road, you might want to save yourself the trouble and just send them back as soon as you get them and put the $$$ towards retros.

+1 on the retros man, i love mine. Hands down the best thing you can do to your car imo. Those are just terrible looking in the first place, if you have the time piece together the retro set up if oyu dont have the cash right away its worth the investment

You will either have to do teh fabrication yourself on the stock headlights or you could get another company like customlightz.com to do the work for you.

Gotcha. So it is not as easy as just swiching out the bulbs in these purchased headlights to improve the light output?
