I was searching ebay for a set of valeos because i really really like the way that the 1 piece projector headlights look.


after i sifted through all of the shitty halos that are painted black and look real cheap...i found these:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/AUDI-A4-95-98-EURO-CLEAR-S4-PROJECTOR-CORNERS-SET_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33649QQihZ020QQitem Z300141772538

I know that they are 2 piece (not exactly what i was looking for)..butttt they look very clean, are pretty cheap, and are projectors. i will get better light output...and eventually i could buy an HID kit for the look that i truly want.

my question is: am i being fooled here? are these just another set of shitty headlights that are on ebay? or are these actually something decent...something that wont leak/break/cause problems?


if they are anything decent, its hard to believe they are only like $140. someone here might go buy them before i can haha

yeah those are the depos. I have them and love the look. It really sharpened the look of my 97. cheap, quality seems alright, and i matched those with a set of cqlights hids and had much better output for less than 300 bucks.

Your better off waiting or looking around for some used 1 piece headlights.

I got my OEM HID 1-piece headlights for $225 on ebay about a year ago including stock ballasts and bulbs.

I was in your shoe's. I have a 98.5 and wanted to upgrade - I was looking at the exact set you are looking at, but after seeing countless others post picks of them installed I decided that they still look like crap with the separate turn signal. keep your eye's open for some OEM stuff, they will come along eventually. I got a set off a 2000 and the tails from a guy for $300 shipped off ebay a little over a month ago. You'll be much happier if you wait. trust me

those look a lot better. Double the price but well worth it. Hid kids are around 100 bucks if you look hard enough. I think a link was posted not too long ago too.

thanks man. So yeah, there you go. A litte under 400 bucks shipped you got "e-code" headlights with a good HID kit in it all new. They aren't the real e-codes, but i don't know too many people that would know the difference.

damn i want these lights so badly haha....problem is i leave for school like mid next week and if i order them now i will be gone by the time they get to me...even if i got them a day before i wouldnt have the time to enjoy them. i am def buying these when i get home on xmas break though...

yesterday i was just in a determined/pissed off mood all day and when i started looking up stuff i wanted for my car and i narrowed in on head lights....thanks for all the help guys.. i am definitely going to be buying these in the near future
