    Their light output is not as great. They look fancy to you but lack lighting. Yelloeye what type do you have? I posted a pic of how mines light up. Can you compare

    The ones in storage are gen 1 with 55w 6000k bulbs. Output and spread is worse than yours but better than stock housings. I'll see about getting a picture tonight.

    Honestly Bass is a great deal. Anything cheaper is going to be the halogen housings made in China. You can build a set yourself for a decent price.

    As in stock lighting I mean stock halogen bulb in our stock headlights. Nothing else. I love the way retros work. And the light output you can't beat them. Its the best. I even made retros for my girls altima.

    Been trying to convince myself to build a set, have a spare set of headlamps without the lenses. The reflectors don't match and I'm starting to think that'd bother me.

    The lenses are the important part Haha. The rest can be painted to match

    And I hope you mean you have the lil yellow shield in the reflector for the turn signal. Those pop out. I use it to paint the housing black and leave the turn signal chrome. Gives it a clean cut .

    They're completely stock, just missing the big clear plastic lens that covers the front of the housing. Pulled them off to stick on the 1st gen headlamps as those ones were peeling.
