Default 2015+ WRX ebay/depo black housing headlights

https://m.ebay.com/itm/STi-Style-LED-White-Bar-Black-Housing-Projector-Headlight-for-15-17-Subaru-WRX/312076962988?fits=Year%3A2015%7CModel%3AWRX&epid=1 3003220925&hash=item48a93c8cac:g:Y2gAAOSwXetZQa0R

So I was browsing on eBay for a set of used limited headlights for my base WRX and I stumbled upon these. Not sure if anyone on here has had any expierience with these but my mentality is they are significantly cheaper than buying a set of limited at headlights at only $300 shipped, and instead of taking apart you're own headlights to black them out you could always buy a set of these and always have your old headlights still intact if you wanted to switch back. Now they are different from the limited headlights in the sense that they don't have the led strip and instead are powered by a bulb like the base headlights so essentially they are just blacked out base headlights. Any thoughts/opinions/experiences from anyone?

I personally am wary of offbrand ebay parts. I took my headlights apart blacked them out and installed rgb Clights with no issues. Just make sure to get morimoto's headlight sealant and follow subispeed's video. You should be fine. Will be way cheaper than buying shady headlights.

I think many people feel the same, myself included.

I'd pass just because the low price, seems too cheap. I'm interested in the blacked out housing but Ive effed up DIY stuff before. Prob just stay stock and worry about other things. carbon buildup... warranty claims... paint swirls...
