Default Why are WRC headlights so cheap??

Hi,

I'm thinking of changing my WRX03 bug-eyes to WRC's, STI's or Morrettes.

I like the WRC's but are concerned at why they seem so much cheaper than other products?

Are they crap??? What are peoples opinions??? Is it a case of "you get what you pay for"???

Thanks

James.

You don't mean these do you?



If so these aren't real WRC lights, just cheap and crappy imitations.

Which ones are you talking about?

If you are referring to the ones on eBay, well you get what you pay for.

Some people on the board hav the eBay lights and like them, but I don't think they look good.

I went with the Morrettes

Those aren't projectors. Worse headlight quality than stock.

Projector headlamps have the little opaque glass ball in them.
