My headlights are need to be replaced. I buff out the haziness, but it comes back in a month. The reflective silver inside is also gone thanks to a busted bulb.

How are the quality/fit of the aftermarket headlights on eBay?

I got the cheapest factory ones and they are the same as my OEM ones. Make sure you adjust all your new legs, to the same specs as your old head light legs.

Or as close as you can get them. You still might have to do a bit of adjusting afterwards to get them right

well with my projectors, when you mess with the adjusters so the lights aim all the way down, the rubber seal looks perfect on it. but when i adjust them to pull them up, you can barely see the rubber seal and theres a big gap underneath the headlight.. i can stick my hand underneath it between the headlight and the bumper

idk, i think some are hit and miss. overall theyre pretty decent though i believe; mine didnt fit too bad.

It is possible the bottom leg is not in place all the way.
on mine I had the bottom outside leg not quite in place and that is what was taking place too.
