Default Replica 2011-2012 LED headlights (Alibaba)

Well it has finally happened... replica ISX50 LED headlights are on Alibaba. Some of us (including me) have had good luck with their replica navi system. Who will be the first to bite on these headlights?

Price looks to be ~$500 + $200 shipping, which is not the best but better than $2k for new OEMs.

Thoughts?

That looks nothing like the OEM headlights. I think the best way to replicate the 2011-12 LED headlight is to install a LED strip inside the headlight.

I highly doubt this will have AFS.

It should be good as long as you use your lights, ballast, etc but I wonder if it will have the bubbling defect

Hmm, I dunno that actually looks pretty close to the OEM ones... I was waiting for this to happen, I wonder if the OEM ones will drop in price at all now. Time will only tell what these are all about, someone bite the bullet lol.

If people chip in to sponsor, I'll gladly try these out for everyone :-D

There are obvious differences to the 2012 headlights of course, my biggest gripe is that the projector looks way too small
