    they don't look that bad to be fair, but the only aftermarket lights i'd go for would be the Pro R8s. i don't understand why nobody's thought to make lights that look like the OEM ones. they'd fly off the shelves

    Nice looking :)
    Do these require headlight washing by law? Or does law only apply on Xenons?

    What's the quality like on the unit itself? I bought aftermarket lights years ago, they were made of the worst plastic ever and they fogged up due to **** seals. This kind of put me off aftermarket headlights but things have probably moved on a good bit since then. The lights do look good in the pics, would be nice to see a full car shot in day light to see what they look like.

    Have you installed the self-levelling that is required by law for Xenon headlights.

    I bought some headlights off that seller a few years ago for a VW Polo..all good apart from the condensation inside!!

    Russo have you noticed any water getting inside these? It mainly shows up in the cold..

    Also any reason why you picked these over the Pro R8s?

    Thanks
