Oh well I guess not all is perfect
for being around 20 years old (dunno your exact year) I would call that pretty damned good and as close to lasting perfection as you can get.

I did not mean in terms of durability but I mean in terms of design. So even when it was brand new it had the same flaws I mentioned

the hid kit is a definite upgrade. the lighting is bright, the cutoff lines arent that good but u will be impressed with the difference of how much better u can see. i will tell u that i had people bright light me only a few times during the time i had em in.
stock lights=3 to 4 at best
stock with these hids in them=6 to 7
eagle eyes with silverstar ultras=8 to 8.5
put hids in the eagle eyes probably a 9 and then projectors of course a 10

5000k and ill pull the kit out today and look at the ballasts to see if there is a brand name on them. it has the bright light option which more or less directs the lighting upwards a little. i paid 250 for it.

I agree with this. I'm running the Eagle Eye's along with bi-xenon HID's in a 91 LS and its like day and night (literally) between these and the OEM lenses with halogen bulbs. You don't get the same distinct cut off that you would get with an OEM HID Projector setup, but don't let that steer you away from going with the Eagle Eye / HID setup. No one ever flashes their lights at me with this setup either.

Python

So the one you are selling has the remote control for adjustment and the bulbs are included like in the link?

Also:

Why are you getting rid of them? You did not like it on your car?

and:

Will this fit a 92 ls400 without modifications or changing the lens or connector?
