High shipping costs to trick buyers and to help avoid Ebay getting a bigger take.
:crazy:

Anyways, the headlights look real sick. :thumbsup:

Exposed Headlights on C5-UGH!

It's your ride so do what pleases you, Corvettes had Hidden headlights from 63 to C-6 model. I like the sleek look of the C5 in the daytime, those aftermarket exposed lights will not be going on my ride anytime soon.:down:

don't waist your money . if they are the same lights i paid 1500 for then they are cheap crap that perform worse then stock. it will cost you 300 to have them painted your body color and they bounce all over the place. hard as hell to install and forget about setting beam position. i suffered with them for 2 years and now have my stock popups back on the car. take a look at my photo if you want to see this crap. you can probably buy mine cheap from the local land fill. put that money towards a nice set of long tube headers.

Yours do look different than the Depo's pictured below. Do you recell the brand you had? We're considering bringing these into stock ... unless they're actually junk as descibed above. We'll probably never stock a lot of items, but what we do stock has to be First Class quality.
Thanks,
Richard

I am real skeptical of these type of lights. I came close to purchasing a set of the pop up HID light kits, however I can't find one good reference.

Personally, I like the looks of my C5 with the pop ups. The only reason I considered the HID kit was because they fit into the pop up light frame so I would keep the stock look and potentially improve my night visibility.

I would suggest if you like the look of the integrated lights, why not move into a C6 and not worry about modding the car? :huh:

Many thanks Bud :thumbsup: I have heard the horror stories on the Spector Werkes lights many times, from many people. I just wanted to be sure that you didn't have the Depo brand. I guess they're all somewhat of a PITA to install, but the fitment of the Depo's are said to be outstanding.
Thanks again,
Richard

That's real good to know, thanks for posting :cheers: Hopefully we'll be able to offer them at a much better price. Unfortunately I just got my balls busted yesterday for selling Halo's too cheap. Now we can't offer them under $324.95, or they won't continue to sell to me. Some competitor that obviously wants to sell much higher, pointed a finger :nuts:
