Everyone continues to associate the word "cheap" with this product which, apart from having hands on them, is unfounded and biased. Chinese products don't necessarily equal cheap, although I understand the stigma.

We've been begging for aftermarket products for the MK3 and now that we're starting to get some there are those that want to decry "cheap." Let's slow down until we know for sure.

Baby steps...baby steps. At least the Chinese are starting the necessary move to get some aftermarket support.
The reason why I think they look "cheap" is the fact that they look like something an extra from the cast of The Fast and Furious would use. If I wanted projector housings at all I'd prefer the clean O.E. style of housing without the added twinkling LEDs. The price does seem quite high to me for something that they say is an HID projector housing but is sold if you read through it as an empty shell intended only for use with h7/h1 halogen bulbs leaving you to sort out an HID conversion kit separately.

Maybe the quality of assembly is better than the look of the product itself, but that remains to be seen.

The only difference between cheap Chinese junk and a quality product coming from China is the quality control. Most of the worlds goods are being manufactured in whole or in part in China. Although for the higher quality products there are usually more stringent quality controls than for those products intended for either the domestic market in China, or for the unscrupulous factory owner looking to make money no matter what.
