Eager to get feedback from those who ordered, I'm ready to try them either way.

    How will they work with the current lights that move with the steering wheel..?
    The company probably hung up because the replacement lights they sell are non HIDs, which would be considered a downgrade for most. I am positive that these lights won't turn with the steering wheel and after doing some research, the bulbs that come with most of these units need to be replaced due to poor quality/lack of illumination.

    Just got home from work, opened the box, took a look at them. They look like a good quality light. The picture doesn't do it justice!
