they'll fit your car, but I don't know how long they will last.

do a search for angel eye upgrade and you'll see others reporting that the ebay product doesn't last as long. mostly due to moisture getting into the back contact where the led and wires meet. some have filled it with silicone to help reduce the exposure.

Not sure its "urgent" help if you have already purchased the bulbs. I would research prior to purchase next time and give the advice that there are enough forum vendors to purchase from and/or give advice.
