Never seen a "Depo" name, BUT GM contracts with thousands of outside suppliers for parts and assemblies.

It has been a long, long, long, long time since most AC Delco parts were made by AC Delco.

Probably one of the best ways to post photos.

Second label - "Made in Taiwan". - - - but that really says nothing about quality or replacement fitness. The product does not look like junk.

You're on your own on this one. Sorry - :noidea:

EDIT: Is it possible to go to a decent Cadillac dealer and look at the "real thing" ? Where did you order the assembly from ? If it came from a GM site it should be OK. Reseller or eBay - who knows ?

Depo lighting is an aftermarket brand. Not GM OEM stuff. However I think that Depo is one of the better AM offerings. Put a set in my older Dodge pick up last year and am satisfied with them. Your Depo light is half the price of the OEM equivalent so its your call.

New from the Dealer is $953.03.

Went to return the Depo to auto zone and they said it had a lifetime warranty. Im not sure if thats good or if its like the Chris Farley movie and they are selling me a box of crap with a lifetime warranty on it

As posted, Depo is one of the better aftermarket lamp manufacturers. I wouldn't worry about the quality.
