I'll hold off on buying these (for now), but I'm just happy to see someone starting to make aftermarket parts for us. For the love of God, it's been a year and a half. Also, the side reflector is clear and not amber, not sure if that'll ever be an issue for anyone, but it's worth noting.

I believe under US DOT regulations you're allowed to be anywhere from amber to white for turn signals. Don't quote me on that. I just feel like I read that somewhere.

those ebay ones seem okay if you don't wanna go HID... neat look to them, someone had mentioned these. Has anyone tried these? you say they are cheap cuz they are from china... but I am pretty sure our current headlights aren't made in the US... I ono for sure though :)

as long as the bulb is yellow... its fine

if it is a reflector... you just have to have a reflector, you are not allowed to remove reflectors, I know this due to being pulled over numerous times on my motorcycle for stupid fix a tickets

The description mentions that you could get an HID kit from them as well (eventually, anyway). Seems promising.

Thanks! I was referring to the reflector.

They don't even use the same bulbs as the factory headlamps and are not set up already with the hid bulbs and ballasts. They are expensive junk compared to the o.e. housings but those cost a lot more.

You're saying the reflector can be clear as long as an amber bulb is used and you can use a white bulb as long as the reflector is amber?

As far as turn signals go, I know that's true. But I'm taking about this little guy:
