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

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.

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!

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..

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
