If those are replicas I'd still be very weary after what happened with the first set with the halos to make it into the country. Meattooth bought a set as indicated earlier, but they fried the circuit boards and rather than return them the seller is trying to make him replace the circuit boards instead as it costs them less money.

If you get a good set you might be ok, but if there is any trouble then you're pretty much on your own.

I'd rather have a direct set of ST3 or Focus Electric housings that shouldn't melt down as soon as they are plugged into the car, but they are quite expensive new, and hard to find used.

Large heavy box shipping from Hong Kong, so yeah the shipping cost is likely huge at least that's what they want you to believe.

If I could do it over I would find an oem set of lights and retofit them with morimoto minis and paint the insides black. Either way you're probably going to have to open up a headlight because the chinese headlights are crap and their customer service is teribble. I filed a paypal dispute for a refund and they denied it. They are sending a new circuit board which will have to be installed with the headlight opened. Plug and play my ass!

Im in the dispute mode now where we have communication through paypal. If I escalate it to claims paypal steps in and rules on the dispute. Going through the process now so when I get their circuit and have to open the headlight to fix it.......it will be escalated then.

They will sell them for 400 + 160 in shipping...... when you get them and plug them in the led strip will flicker then blow a hole in the circuit board. When you ask for a refund they will deny you then send a replacement board to try. This will be 3 months after initial purchase. When you get the board you will realize there is no way to replace the board witbou opening up the headlight. Then place your 560 $ headlight in the oven and try to pry it open not even k owing that a replacement board will even work. Cross fingers and hope they arw fixed so you can sell them to some sucker that isnt on ff. Go buy projectors from retro solutions and mod your oems for years of hid quality........

This company is the same I bought mine from. First pair to the us and the first pair to fry in 2 min.

The garage still smells after this thing burnt!!!
