Re: Just bought these off of e-bay (NJB)

ya i've got a pair. They look sick just don't put a high wattage bulb in them as i did cause they'll melt the cheap plasitc. The bracets are matched perfectly and they're made of bendable materials so you can get it in just the right place. Have fun on the install.

Re: Just bought these off of e-bay (ghostrider)

Got a pair that looked very much like them, as mentioned above, don't put a high wattage bulb in there! I changed out the bulbs that came with the fogs...they were rated 55W which put me off a bit, but I installed the new 55W bulbs since I'd already removed the old ones. The next day they literally burned up. What's the point of fogs that you have to use so low wattage bulbs in that you just as well could have put a couple of candles up front?
Looks better that a couple of holes in your bumper though

Yeah, but I heard, there are metal (steel ?) reflector version not plastic. It's made by other manufacture. (HELLA ??)
Is it correct ? Does anyone know that information ?? If yes, please advise me !

Re: Just bought these off of e-bay (morimori)

no, these are not a remake from Hong Kong. They are made in Mainland China by knockoff factories. There are many versions floating around, some even say Hella on the glass, but they are NOT Hella.
The quality is nowhere near the Hella units, but hey, for that price, they're worth it. Actually I know where to get them and those guys on ebay are raking in a lot of profit.

The DEPO units are of a much better quality, second to the Hella units, but they're also more pricey, and you'll never see these on ebay because they cost more.
The fog brackets are made of much thinner gauge metal. but they will work with some adjustments. I'd repaint these with a durable finish so they don't rust out. Have fun, I like cheap parts.

yeah, those things might be ricey, but certainly not the worst. Plus, he/she has a ton of good looking stuff for MK2s at good prices.

I would have to agree with you http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
