I have always wanted HID's in my cars/trucks. I have never really been able to afford a car that had them from the factory. my lexus is way too much hassle with getting a retrofit for projectors done and i daily drive it. i can't modify it because its my work.
the truck on the other hand my wife drives to work and back. i bought an HID kit from retro solutions(highly recommend) and cheapo ebay projectors(they suck).
so after realizing that these ebay lights suck, i called diesel power products(whom i will NEVER buy anything from again) to inquire about recon headlights. i asked if they were HID designed projectors or halogen designed projectors, and was told "HID" for sure. on that word, i ordered a set. they get here, and these lights are the SAME DARN THING AS THE CHEAPO EBAY LIGHTS
I am immediately fuming mad and call diesel power products to try to arrange a return based off of the false information their rep gave me.
At this point, i was told there was a 90 dollar restock fee, i had to pay for the original shipping to me(which was "free" at the time of order) and i also had to pay return shipping... so about 160 dollars i lose out on these crap headlights.
moral of the story is, if you are remotely considering recon lights or ebay headlights for projectors, DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. i spent weeks searching here and on the internet whether or not to buy the recons or the ebays, and heard mixed results on both. I was not expecting ferrari lights after all, so i bought the ebays... they are cheap, they suck, and break easily. the recons are the EXACT SAME THING, just a slightly different design. they are NOT designed for HID's and even have a factory warning that says these piece of dog turd lights will get condensation in the lights... wonderful, the same reason i wanted to can the ebay lights.
so here is a giant F U to diesel power products for 1. lying to me, and then trying to bend me over on a restock fee cause your a-hole salesman lied to me and 2. bending me over on shipping.
i am going to use the recon lights for target practice because they suck. we have some tannerite laying around and will be blowing them to kingdom come.
please forgive my novel, i am STEAMING MAD.
for the TL;DR types cliffnotes:
ebay projectors suck
recon projectors suck equally as bad
dont try putting a proper HID kit on your truck that was designed for halogen lights, it doesnt work and you will spend a LOT of money for something quality.
a quality replacement headlight does not exist. I hope i can help at least ONE person out there save their money and not get scammed or duped into buying recon products or cheapo ebay headlights. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR.
