: Thoughts on Ebay Headlights

I just bought a 97 528i, and my headlights are rather foggy internally. Just wondering what y'all think of the headlight assemblies on Ebay? Also could anyone recommend somewhere else to look for headlights?

About 2 years ago I bought DEPOs to get clear corners. Perfect fit and no issues since.

I got clear corners on eBay last summer and they worked out great and puting them on wasn't to bad.

So I'm the downer.... bought corners for my last 3 that were supposed to be OEM.... got them, installed them, thought things didn't quite fit right since they seemed a bit loose and the holes didn't line up quite right..... then promptly drove up to Laguna Beach. Couldn't figure out why I got weird stares on the drive up... stopped and found out that my corners had fallen out along the way.

Anyway, the point of the story..... just watch out for fakes and if it's too good to be true it might just be.
