    There are two types really. The first one is basically an HID projector mounted in a housing the size of the sealed beam, like this:


    The other type looks like the sealed beam, but the lens is specially designed for the higher output, like these:

They only cost me $17 shipped on eBay too. I just removed that dumb little bulb on the bottom area and patched it up. My car had the 1 piece ugly ass sealed units before I got these

    As has been stated already, if those are the plastic lens ebay lights they are BLINDING the crap out of people coming towards you. I bet you get high beam flashed alot even when you are in low beam?



    I went ahead and got a set of those Autopal euro's with the standard white 60/55 bulbs. I'll give an opinion on them when i get them installed.

    Yeah, I tried those out, attracted to their price...

    Try them against a blank concrete wall. They cast a pattern like a dining room chandelier. They have all these blind areas with wash outs from glare. They are a cheap gimmick without any real engineering. Please toss them for your own safety, if not for ours.

    The lense on my headlights feel like glass and not plastic like you say. Now that I think of it I have been flashed by other drivers in the past and never thought of it. I'll check on my garage door and see what you mean. I've always thought they were ok since they produce enough light for me. I saw somebody with a MR2 (I think) install actual hid projectors on a housing set like the ones I have and it worked great. I still have the slim denso ballast from my other car so mabey I'll look into that. Actual tsx/s2000 hid projectors,bulbs and ballast look sweet!

    I have seen plastic ones as well. The benefit over the cheap glass ones, is you know that is low grade glass. Part of the reason the housing is cheap, is they use thin, low grade glass to maintain a clear lens. It doesn't take a whole lot to shatter one.

    The other thing I hated about the housing design is that "city light". You'll notice a lot of housings project light from the lower half of the housing. The interruption from the "city light" can only add to the glare by disrupting a crucial area of the geometry in the reflector. Add in the fact that you have another opening to allow in moisture, and you can run into some issues in heavy California fog.

    ^^ decent cut off but look at all those rainbows!


    so no pictures to show but I got my Autopal's installed and adjusted. Im please with them for the price. They are definately an improvement over standard sealed beams. The Low beams are significantly better than stock. The only complaint is a slightly odd/uneven pattern for the high beams. These will do for now. I plan to upgrade my factory fogs to yellow h3 as well and rewire for selectable "always on"

    I'll see if I can grab a picture of the pattern in the next day or two.

    I use Autopals with 8000K Brite white bulbs. Not blinding to oncoming drivers, but have improved my night sight greatly.... The best alternative IMO....
