I installed mine tonight. Install went well, but I have a question. I cut wire 12 on both sides per the instructions and connected the drivers side to the power harness, but this has rendered the parking lights inoperative. Is that how these are supposed to work? Is it legal in the US? Surely you should be able to have your parking lights on and DRL's running at 50% power at the same time.

ya, I wasnt sure about ebay quality, but then I realized that for 12 bucks, I'll just freakin replace them whenever they burn out.

Biggest issue I had with these is they are supposed to be waterproof, and they aren't fully sealed correctly, I am working with the seller to fix the problem and get some sealed ones.

We are really comparing apples and oranges. This kit comes with new trim pieces, with the LEDs already installed, angled properly and sealed. Also, you have to look at the quality of the enclosure and the LEDs. I was aware that I can buy cheap LEDs and cut the stock pieces myself, and do all the wiring connections. I was not interested in doing all of this myself. This kit was perfect for me.

The current price is a little high, but I expect it to drop. I am an early adopter, so I am used to paying a slight premium. You can always sell your stock trim pieces to recoup some of the cost of this kit.

Got mine in yesterday, now to install without screwing things up. The product does look really good out of the box.
