They are cheap reflector lights and will probably perform worse than your stock headlights. Don't waste any money on them even if they're inexpensive.

Iirc, there was at least one owner that posted here about 2 months back regarding either the wiring or the plastic near the light units melting / getting burnt.

I could be wrong, but the shape of the reflector makes it seem like both the low and high beams have a spot light pattern (that narrow conical beam), and would probably light up similar to the "wrc look" headlights for the GD*A/B & GG*A/B (bugeyes) below. At the very least, the low beams should be replaced with something useful like the Hella 90mm projector low beam units.
