    I think it would help if we knew what type of headlights you have now. Everything is based on comparisons. There are many threads discussing various headlights. What are you willing to spend?

    Good luck, Marv

    I have stock headlights that came with the car from the dealership. I guess OEM would be the right phrase. I am willing to spend about 300 for a pair, does that sound fair? I'm not exactly sure if they're sold in pairs or individually.

    That will buy you some ebay headlights that will not work any better or worse than what you have now, halo is a style more than a type of light.

    Do you have HID and what is your reason for wanting to change?

    I am doing an HID retrofit right now on my 2010, I do not have HID, installing HID bulbs in the halogen projectors is lame and not recommended.

    Just to let you know, the bottom video, there is a very long thread about how cheaply made those lights are. They are total garbage. I should know I'm the first one that got them and tried them out. They leak. All three pairs they sent me leak. Plus the LEDs went out in less than a month. Garbage. The top ones you have to send your light in and they will make it for you. Or you can purchase the parts and bake open your own headlight and do it yourself. Again not worth it in my opinion.

    Keep in mind if you have HID lights now ebay lights will not help you.

    Andrew,

    Look in your owners manual and find out which headlights you have now. Then you will have a better idea of what improvement you would get by new headlights. You aren't going to get much for $300 (that is any good). I also wonder if you would have the skills to install them, adding further costs for installation.

    Understand your pain, but maybe this mod just isn't for you. Marv
