they've been selling them for a while, at that price they sure better not leak.

and i wouldn't go with a 10k, that's way to high and pointless. unless you just really like the color.

Had my head lights for a year. Never had a problem. Mine never leaked or got foggy. The halos are not very noticeable when your headlights are running but look sweet when you just have the running lights on.

X2. Anything above 8k is worthless in my opinion.

I would even say not to go higher than 6K. I mean it's personal preference but higher color temperature does not mean you'll see better. white light, I think around 4800K ?? would give the best visibility.

The guy that DJ got his from did a pair for me. I dont have them yet but he has sent me progress pics and he has done an outstanding job so far. I highly recommend him. And they were not anywhere near 700 and I didnt even send him my housings.

530. Shipped would have been less but I couldnt send my headlight housings to him so I had to buy a set. It also depends on what you want, you pick out which retro kit, ect you want and any additional custom things you want. He gives you a price and thats what you pay. Well worth it imo.
