Look good to me. Get some HID's while your at it too

Try and find a set a little cheaper. OR get them sent USPS, they don't charge duty comming across the line. UPS and Fedex will charge like 60 bucks to bring them over

Actually yes they are. The light output is better. I replaced my stockers on my old 95 with some like these and it looks 10x's better and light output was at least 5x's better.

Can your headlights not be modded like the newer headlights? $50 is a great deal. $165 for shipping is not. Guarantee they are probly coming from China or some other place like that, which means they are probly made cheap as hell. If you can mod your headlights that you have now, get some lense restorer, masking tape, black spray paint, and adhesive silicone, and your out maybe 20-30 bucks.
