You'll have to ask the guy for an actual picture of the lights that he is selling.

The picture shows a 1999.5+ A4 with 1-piece headlights and an eyebrow trim piece on the top edge. Obviously, that is not what he is selling.

My bet is that he is selling once of the taiwan made headlights.

Look at the shroud around the projector, and the turn signal. Those arent regular 1 piece headlights.

I'm not saying they arent cheaply made or knock offs, but the pic definitly isnt stock 99.5+ headlights.

They could be e-codes but aren't Xenon ecodes...

That's a 1-piece light with an eyebrow....


Here's a 1-piece without the eyebrow:

Ok guys, I can't beleive you guys are blind here!! That is an e-code with an amber bulb... You can see the city lights inside of the upper part of the high beam, AND the turn signal has a tiny lense in front of it... They are e-codes... Maybe an off brand but they are not US OEM ones...

okay, you guys are missing the point.

Just because the guy posts a pic of an OEM 1-piece headlight in his auction does not mean that you will get exactly that.

Just ask him to provide a picture of the actual lights that you will receive for $238.

I surely doubt that he is selling brand new Valeo 1-piece housings for that price.

Never assume anything on ebay auctions. Know exactly what you are paying for before you pay. That way you don't have to fight to get your money back later.

Ok, I bought the exact same pair from the same seller, they are ecodes, just DEPO brand, they have all the harnesses and city lights and everything, they look great in real life too, if I can find my camera ill take a real picture because that picture was used in the auction i bought, but those arent the ones they send you. PM me if you have any questions

nice, please post the pics. That's a pretty good price as long as the quality is good.

^^ I will hopefully take some pics tonight when the HIDs are lit up, and all take some after work today in the sunlight (car is sort of dirty however) just so you can get an idea. I love them much better than stock headlights. Good seller too on ebay, they shipped them out fast.

great! My main concern would be the beam pattern from the projector. I don't want anything with bright spots you know? So if you can, try to get a good pic of the way they light up the road.

Thanks a bunch.
