Chrome headlight trim kits

Has anyone seen or used the Chrome headlight trim as seen on Ebay? The top portion of my headlights seem to be fading/wearing to a yellowish color, and I think these can help hide the issue.

Do you think they will look too cheap, and effect the nice front lines of the car?

Thanks,

I don't have a set, but they don't look that great in the picture. I wouldn't buy them unless I saw them in person first and really liked them.

A lot of people replace their OEM headlights with litronics. You might be able to find a nice used set of headlights at a good price. That would solve your yellowing problem.

Gotta say no way on the chrome. Plus, they look like they stick up a little making the front end not smooth anymore.

Now I have seen these up close in person and they look good. This is JP-s-in st. louis' car.

Jps idea looks pretty bad ass on a black boxster...but then again, hes got the clear non-orange lamps and the nicer bumper, so that in itself makes 89% of the difference from my stock unchanged boxster compaired to his.
