What's the difference

What is the difference, if there is any, with Ebay headlights and headlights from somewhere like Andy's motor sports?

Andy's headlights are a ton more expensive than Ebay ones. I've considered getting black headlights, but I don't want to get crappy ones.

If any of you guys bought headlights from either place, how were they? Any distinct flaws?

^lol.

I have had the ebay lights for a while now. Now distinct flaws or anything. They are clean and nice looking.

Instead of a shiny black on the inside, it is more like a dull matt finish, which doesnt really make a difference to me. They have never fogged or anything, so I would buy them again.

Had 3 sets of e-bay lights... absolute **** quality... Honestly, do it right the first time and get the ones from andy's auto sport. the only issue I had with those ones was the light reflectors were not installed (kinda a PITA).
Oh, and with ANY aftermarket headlights, be sure to seal them really good with a quality silicone!!!

Well if you get the time, I'd paypal you the money.

That's why I had Taylor mod some corners for me, I didn't like the black ebay ones.

I'm pretty sure you can buy the headlights without corners though
