Buyer Beware!

LOL! I bought these and the seller shipped them both in a single box barely large enough to hold them both, let alone protect them from shipping damage. Both lenses were facing outward and had a few layers of the small bubble wrap or paper between it the the outside of the box. The right lens had shattered. The left lens had a hole in it. If you look carefully at the picture of the left light, you'll see that the main reflector is rusted. Seller took a week before shipping, then it took another week or so to get here. Emailed several times and got no response. Finally took it to Paypal and it resolved in my favor. Still had to pay for return shipping, though.

Bought these, hope they are in better shape than the others. 6_fvi%3D1&_rdc=1#ht_1976wt_1140

I know they aren't that popular but I have a set of Depo's in my 124 with overwattage bulbs and the light output is twice what the OEM lights had. Beam pattern is good too.

Having said that I am on my second set of Bosch Euros for my sons 123. Used euros on Ebay are a risk. The first set had badly corroded electrics, fortunately the seller took them back. In the second set, the shield that covers the bulb has come loose. Don't know if I can re attach it or not. I have been fortunate and not paid over $150 for either set.

I would stay away from the xenon conversions. The bulb is not oriented in the reflector the same as stock and it throws the beam pattern all to he!!.
