OEM Headlight vs. Projector H4

Hey Everyone,

I was looking to get brighter headlights for my S13 but not sure whats better. I was looking at a set on ebay. Does anyone have a set of these? If so, are they better or should I just stick to the stock ones? Thanks for the help.

Sorry if the link doesnt work...I'm not sure how to do it but the item number is 8017464046. Just put it in the search and it should come up.

I figure new headlights should be better than the old ones too but the way the projectors look makes me wonder how good the beams would be. They are pretty cheap too.

Hey I'm running the same ones from ebay and they are defintely worth the money. They claim that you can change the bulbs but never tried. To be honest i'd get those you won't be disappointed.

Thanks man, I really appreciate the help!! I'm most definitely giving them a try. I actually ordered a set anyway just to see since they aren't that expensive.

If it ain't DOT apporved, don't expect it to light up the road too well. You may get glare and/or hotspots and a beam pattern that may not illuminate the road that well.
