Euro headlights smoked

I recently switched my headlights to the cheap!! Angel eyes headlights from eBay and it has been a lot of work trying to get the lights to work. Also the light output on them is like 10 feet lol. I do have HID's with the lights and they are 5k H1.

That being said I am going to return them and get my money back. I am looking at this headlights from are sponser website.

06-11 Honda Civic 2DR Euro Headlights - Smoke

I just wanted to know if anyone has used these or has any review on the lights?

I know that I will have to switch from the H1 back to stock bulbs but I can keep my ballas. Also are these just plug and play?

Thanks

I never understood the point of smoking out your head/tail lights...I know it's a "look" thing, but doesn't the output go down???

I agree that a retro would be the best way to go but at the same time it can get expensive and it is alot of work... lol.

Yeah I think, I just like the look of black headligts. But hard to find ones with good output.

Minis are 300 or so for a complete setup and you can easily do the labor yourself.. about 200 if you already have ballasts

Yeah that's a good price, but I think I am over doing more work and more money towards the headhights. I think I am going to to Depo headlights with black assembly, reflector style, and 5k HID's.
