Anyone buy those \"Euro\" headlights on eBay?

I was just noticing that there's really a LOT of stuff on eBay that's being sold with "Suzuki Samurai" in the title. These headlights particularily bother me because the same guy is selling dozens of them at the same time under the same title. I was just curious if there's really that many people buying them. Am I missing something? They look sorta cheap to me.

I bought them and love them. I bought the Diamond cut style. They are a lot brighter and look great! It takes about 5 minutes to put them in, you use all your stock brackets. I think that I paid $42.00 to my door. They even have another small bulb that I hooked to my parking lights that make the headlights glow when the hadlights are off.

I bought them too. The dimond cut ones. They are slightly brighter than the halogens that I had. More or less they just look cooler than stock and they give the look of the HID. I have gotten quite a few compliments with them too.

I didn't mean to imply that they were junk and crap. I just realized my post sounded bad. I guess I was just in awe at all the odd stuff they're associating with Zuks and wonderin' if there was such a demand for this stuff. Sorry if I sounded offensive.

It is pretty frustrating when looking for "real" parts to have to sort through a couple of pages of colored lights. You're right about that. Wish EBay's search was sophisticated enough to exclude the darn things.

It can, look at the advanced settings. just pick the right word or you lose other stuff too.

samurai -((diamond,+,headlights)) should work.

I have them (diamond cut) and I really love them. They cost less than some places charge just for the bulbs! Big difference in amount of light, but more importantly, the pattern.

Any of the halogen 6004 conversions are going to be stock like. The high power xenon lights will fry them seleves. The stock xenon h4 headlights with the 6004 conversion kit works very well, the bulbs last a long time, and they are lots brighter! The high fi high power h4 bulbes are expensive, very very very bright, and are very very very hot, hit water, boom. Make sure to seal up the bulb gasket thing (mine leaks somethimes). Nice and bright, good improvement!
