Ebay light quality

So can anyone vouch for the quality of the headlights on ebay? are they the same as what you get on AM.com? Looking at 99-04 styles.

Re: Ebay light quality

Depends on the headlight. Some reputable aftermarket mustang companies sell OEM or smoked headlights on ebay that are good, quality lights. But other headlight styles, like the euro or halo styles can be cheap crap from shady "ebay" stores.

That's my .02 on them, I haven't actually ordered headlights form ebay though.

What style headlight were you looking at?

Re: Ebay light quality

Any aftermarket headlight you buy needs to be resealed.

Re: Ebay light quality

I would suggest not using ebay, but if you're like so many people you'll do whatever you want and buy the cheap ones anyways. My suggestion is to only buy from a very reputable dealer and make sure you are well aware of the return policy.

Lowflyn is right, the first thing you need to do is reseal ANY aftermarket headlights. It will save you a lot of headache later.
