Those apear to be just bulbs, as long as you are running your stock housings the out put still isnt going to be that great. The best bet is to go to walmart and get the Navigator Cyber white fog lights also know as Pilot Cyber Whites at Auto Zone both places are $39.00. They are slightly smakker than stiock (3.8" vs 4") but put out a awesome light pattern. The lens is blue, but the out put is a briliant white that you will wonder how you lived without.

If that set up is not bright enough, as long as you used the supplied harness you can upgrade to Pilot 100W bulbs available at Auto Zone for $4 a bulb.

The install takes 1 hr and the results are amazing. Finish it all off with a set of Sylvania Cyberwhite lows.

It smells funny, in my opinion. The writing of this ad is total amateur-hour stuff, not the sort of marketing a real automotive lighting company would do, and yet he'* trying to sound like he _is_ the company. Notice also that his lighting-comparison graphic is between "Stock" and "HID" lighting, but his product is _not_ High-Intensity Discharge lighting; it'* just a pair of blue bulbs. I flat-out don't believe it'* the only brand of Xenon out there, either. My guess is that it'* some sort of Herbalife or Amway-like multi-level marketing thing.

Ah, yes, here we are, from his eBay listing: "If a Eurodezigns product should ever become defective it will be covered under your "lifetime warranty", please contact Eurodezigns Inc. directly. Do not contact the eBay seller who sold you the product, they will just redirect you to Eurodezigns Inc. The eBay seller does not carry your warranty, Eurodezigns Inc. is the ONLY person [sic] who will honor your warranty needs."

His feedback is mostly positive, although one recent purchaser has said of the bulbs: "Lights are dim - product not as advertised. Had to change back to old lights."

I'd skip it.

I'd say skip them. Those ARE NOT HID'*, they are Xenon charged bulbs. Xenon gas burns hotter than a Halogen or partial Xenon/Halogen bulb. One thing I don't like is there is no Watt rating on there. Those could be 100W low beams, not something you want to put in a stock housing.

there is nothing in the books in missouri against colored lights, and no cop that has pulled me over has said anything, and it says in the ad there 100% D.O.T. approved

Yes, I don't think you'd get pulled over for using them, at least not unless some really creative cop uses that as an excuse to get a better look inside your vee-hickle, but these don't look like anything that you couldn't find at Wal-Mart.

And claims like "BACKED BY POLICE AGENCIES" are simply preposterous; what the heck does that _mean_?
