weird. each headlight on my car costs $1250. I have seen the knock-off HIDs go for over $600 on ebay for the set but those are prolly some lower quality ballasts and whatnot. Just make sure they are all rated to the same kelven temp schdule or you will have some burnt out bulbs and HID bulbs aren't the cheapies you pick up at autozone.

I'm sure you know all this already though since you actually know about ballasts being the major part.

**I have sigs turned off, so if you're asking for advice based on your mods, I can't see them**

I have the black headlights off of Ebay. You can see a pic of them on my car in my sig.

I think they look sweet, and the install was simple as hell once you figure it out (i have had to uninstall and reinstall them several times for adjustments and the replace the bulbs, and i can do all 4 parts in about 5 minutes flat now )

The only problem is that they don't project enough light to the side of the car, which makes going around corners in dark neighborhoods kind of treacherous. Hopefully my Silvania Silverstars that I'm getting soon will help that a little, and I'm also going to adjust the beam a little more becuse that helped before.

The other thing is that the fitment of the black rubber seal on the outside of the corner housing is ****. It pretty much looks like hell, the rubber overlaps with the body about an 1/8 of an inch and looks crooked. Not really sure what can be done to fix that other than tearing the rubber part off, but I don't know how good that would look.

I would definitely suggest sealing the housings up really well with silicon becuase I did a ****ty job on the right-hand headlight and it fogs up, but the left-hand one doesn't becuase it sealed it up really well.

Anyone have any advice on how to make the rubber seal fit better or know if the corners would look ok with the seal on them?
