I know, I know... Use the search, stupid! I did, but the threads were like 2 years old and nowadays, things change.

So, i was looking at these for my PW box and wanted to get feedback.

I have a couple of choices.

Choice #1: http://www.k2motor.com/lhpxb04jmbyd.html

Choice #2: From ebay and look to be the same and with shipping, about the exact price... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/03-0...tegoryZ33710QQihZ005QQitemZ150028210872QQrdZ1

Choice #3: Duals... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/02-0...tegoryZ33710QQihZ004QQitemZ140024235955QQrdZ1

Choice #4: Kinda dig the eyebrow effect... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/03-0...tegoryZ33710QQihZ020QQitemZ300022208388QQrdZ1

Just some opinons. I heard about the fogging and was wondering how to go about resealing the projector area like someone suggested.

Whatcha all think?

I have the first style your looking at exept in chrome. I had fogging issues with the drivers side from the get go, so I needed to seal them. I did mine a little different then most have sealed theirs on here, I used a large caliber needel and surrenge? filled it with silicone and filled in the gap between the clear lens and housing I then drilled three small weep holes on the lowest points of the lens. Haven't had an issue with fogging since. I did both lights just in case. Hope this helps. I can take a few pictures if you need them.

Choices 1 & 2 are the same light.

Choice 3 will take some modifying, every set I've seen fogged. I had that same set at one time but heavily modified them - removed the LED ports, painted the housing body color etc etc ... but you will have to reseal them if nothing else.

Choice 4. No experience with them, but visually, I think they are the better choice of the 3 styles.

If you can find them, there is also the Ichikoh bug-eye lights, I'm sure there are some Ichikoh knock-offs on eBay too.

Choice 4 from what I have heard is VERY dim. Because they use tiny bulbs.

Had Choice 3, and sold them, never installed them. OMG as a matter of fact, I SOLD Pumkinbox those lights he heavily modified :D (his name was windowtint back then though ;) )

Choices 1&2 are my personal faves.

I had #3. I don't think they ever fogged up on me, light output sucks, HID's work nice. They are not adjustable. HID's are a must.

Thanks, guys. #1 or #2 it is. I really like the #4 choice, but after maybe a few more comments and anyone who's owned them...

WVxB, I'd like to see how you did what you did - especially the weep hole deal. I can figure out the sealer part, but like to see where you put holes...

I have the 1 &2 style. The driver fogged up on me like once. light output good. I plan on getting HIDs(one day) but the halos look nice. If you open then reseal them, i think you should either remove that grey part or paint it black.
