Yeah, stay away from the eBay headlights. You get what you pay for.

ive read of a few post of people having these saying the light output wasnt great and few other problems. i persoanlly wouldnt know.

but im looking at getting some orciaris or prodrives, but i cant justify paying $900 for headlights. these are hella cheap , i am actually considering getting a set, but i dunno.

those are the lights that came on my car when I bought it. they are not the best lights but they are decent. I have no idea how long they have been on the car, but I bought the car this past February and I haven't had any problems with cracking or moisture getting inside them. I'm saving up to get a pair of these http://www.fastwrx.com/wrxstylhead.html

Only thing I don't like about them is the white cover over the turn signals. I have no idea if these are as bright as stock or not since I've never driven a bugeye with stock lights at night.
here's a few pics of them on my car for ya.

honestly I don't know it came on the car when I bought it. I had seen it on fastwrx.com but seems to not be there anymore.
it's on the car showing the headlights I posted about here http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.c..._1916_43214376 so I can assume it's made by Orciari

my old roommate had them and yes, they do suck. they leaked on the blinker, and they have very poor light out put. plus, they are not wired correctly. you will have to switch some wires around. save your money and get a wire harness and some better bulbs

I remember seeing your thread about that. If I had the time to I'd do the same thing to mine. How about you send me yours when you are done and I'll send you mine

Here is my thread of what I did to them.. they went through a bunch of trial and error attempts until I finally got them to work the way I wanted to

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=962510

Light output is about the same as stock.. I put in some GE Nighthawk bulbs in them instead of the ones that come with the lights.

Maybe next year I'll do the TSX HID retrofit into them...

They should look pretty close to this Photoshop that I did when they are both done:
