Fake W124 Euros?

Anyone have experience with these fake Euros? I realize the reflectors, etc. aren't going to be the upgraded version, so no performance upgrade, but they sure do look nicer than the US spec lights, plus I can keep my existing headlight wiper setup. For the price of one OEM plastic fog rim, I can upgrade both sides to fake euro.

Any opinions?

I don't know how he can attach the glass lens on a US spec headlight assembly. What I think the seller has is just the glass lens for the Euro lights. This is attached to the euro headlight assembly via metal clips. I don't see how you can attach it to a US spec light as the unit itself is totally different.

Is it me or does this make no sense. You are basically putting a lense on top of the US spec light which ALREADY has a lens. So now the headlight which has poor lighting to begin with has to go through two lenses and get refracted twice

True. Forget that guy. Got to performance product(not affiliated), same price less hassle. Its just the lenst if you look at the after picture there is a little lip at the bottom of the lense. Look stupid
