Projector Headlights

Alright guys I need some help. I have been looking at Ebay for Projector headlights and I believe they have some great deals. I see a lot of Projectors for under $210 including shipping.

But my question is there is supposingly a version 2 pair that you need to get because of the fact the first version has fitting issues. Can anyone help me out and tell me if these would be a good buy?

Thanks in advance!

I agree with the others the clear corner ones from the other thread with the smoked or black housing, but I really like these ones too Oh and no fitting issue with these, they are completely plug and play they come with a 9006 low and a H1 hi beam.

And here is it on the car



here is the thread

Got Headlights and Tails

Well I have chrome taillights on my car right now and if I would get the black housing Projectors I am not sure if that would look good, or totally ridiculous.

By the way, this sure doesn't look like ass to me...

Clear chrome tails on a red GA make baby kittens cry.

Yup. I helped with the install on my friend's GA with these exact ones. But it'll be so much easier with a dremel. Also, you have to cut and splice the wires for the halos and LED's from the center parking bulb socket.
