:dunno:

they are crap quality, you will be dissapointed with the quality of them. but that said, there is no other option, and do not look too bad one fitted. at least you dont have to modify them to fit. i have their front clears on my wagon, probably the same seller. running the stock orange rear and sides though as touring specific :( my ones came with amber bulbs though which was a nice surprise

DanM5 03-23-2013 05:17 PM

Is it just that brand that is poor quality or are they all the same?? Like if I was to buy the lot individually...

M540FELLA 03-23-2013 11:46 PM

It's not the best quality. I've got the clear corners and tails. The corners are okay, but the rears have a short bolts and are kinda weak. If fact mine have broken on the bottom. However you can't beat the price. I would love some hella tails but jeebus they're expensive.

His screen name is Skodta. He will ship!

MySatinDoll 03-24-2013 12:27 PM

skoda is the man with getting things like these.

I do it too but I don't ship outside the US.

DanM5 03-31-2013 12:37 AM

Got no reply from Sskoda but checked out what he had in his wreckers yard.. No Hellas in stock at the moment.. So I ordered the Depo set off ebay.. I'll post pics when they arrive an I install them

Did mine a few years ago but I'm sure I got them (via the net) from England & sent to Oz. Never had any trouble fitting & have fitted the 'silver' bulbs in all places (they run yellow when working, so you can't see the yellow bulb.) Cleaned the appearance of the car up real good. ALSO bought "Depo" headlights WHICH ARE ABSOLUTE CRAP... so refitted the old ones!

I personally like #4 the best Dan on the wihite car :thumbup:

DanM5 03-31-2013 06:05 AM

Yeah that's what I've ordered, they're what I meant by clear.. #2 & #3 just look cheap, in my opinion, more like e Lexus style of light..!!

M540FELLA 03-31-2013 08:02 AM

That's the set I got. Although I'm kinda digging on #8

Depo's arrived.. But since I'm just finished a 12hr shift AND the fact that I have tomorrow off, I shall wait till then to fit them and post pics so you guys can give me your opinions..

Watch this space.......rite here!

There are several on eBay but be ready to spend $250 plus

They look virtually identical to the OEM lights but they are smoked out and pretty sick looking. But yes they are RARE
