a word of caution, alot of these aftermarket projector lights have terrible light output and quality issues. But nevertheless, if anyone who has halogens and are looking to trade up without going OEM, i say ....take a gamble and let the board how they are lol

I was actually looking at these lights on ebay last week. But I don't trust LED's. They seem to burn out fast. I see lots of new Audi's and BMW's with bad LED's.

I'd agree. 98% is pretty poor for someone selling $900 headlights. Yes, I know that's cheaper than OEM, but obviously this guy isn't selling quality stuff and he's not standing behind the merchandise.

And if you look at only the negative feedback several of the feedback are from customers who purchased these lights for other vehicles saying they did not fit their vehicles without significant modification.

I'd say this auction is busted, I wouldn't buy them unless they were under $100.
