Eagle Eye Headlights

I'm looking to replace my stock headlights with the Eagle Eye Headlights here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-2010-PO...ht_4227wt_1163

I have a few questions though before I purchase them. #1. How easy are they to install? I have an '09 GXP Sedan. #2. Are these a good purchase? I've read a lot of good things about them so far, but I just wanted to see what you guys thought. #3. The bulbs that come with it are just normal halogen bulbs, not hids, correct? Lastly, #4. What size HIDS do these headlights take? Are they still the H11 for the lows? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help out a little!

I bought my Eagle Eye's from Ebay as well and I love them. Install was extremely easy, had them installed in under 10 mins. There was no additional wiring with mine. They came pre wired to the original pigtail so all I had to do was plug them in. They came with a ballast for the halos that I had to locate a good location to place it using already adhered to-sided tape. Mine do not use the standard H11 bulbs (wich I found disappointing because I couldn't use my already purchased silverstars) instead they came with H1 high and H7 low beam bulbs. They are not HID just Halogen.

On a side note mine havent been installed that long and I have not yet been able to drive at night with them so I really dont know how bright they are just yet.

#1 - Easy, their plug and play. #2 - Yes, their an awesome purchase. I've had no problems with them so far and plenty of comments. #3 - Yes. #4 - IDK this one but the EE bulbs are H7 for the lows, H1 for the highs.

Top link - Since they're not made by sabersport or revotech, I would stay away or email/call and verify they are made by ss or rtech.

Bottom link - broken link

None. They're plug and play.

I'm going with the Saborsport ones. Thanks for all of your help guys. It's greatly appreciated. I have one last question though. Which size HIDS do these Eagle Eyes take? I've seen H1 and H7. Which size is for the lows?

-and at night = the same as DRL but the orange Aux lights come on as well.

Are these the same as yours, Lampoon? I saw your guide, but I don't understand what you did with that hole you drilled.

Has anyone done the HID conversion with this headlight? What HID kit did you get?

Yes..those are them.

Your stock screw adjustment housing contains a set screw.
On these CCFL lights that screw projects from that housing. When you adjust it the
set screw moves in and out. In adjusting it I discovered that the screw hits the
back and pushes the whole light housing up. This will damage it and not allow it to adjust correctly. I just drilled a hole into the metal so the set screw could freely move in and out when adjusting.
