EBay 1 piece headlights

Ok I'm needing to kno if they are worth getting, they look great has anyone bought them? It's corner marker parking light and projecter headlight all in 1, I'm needing new headlights and corner markers so it is less expensive to go the 1 piece route but if they are poor quality then I don't want. They are around 200 bucks and ppl around here want that much for just headlights thanks in advance for any info

Generally the best choice for overall quality of manufacture and of light output is to go with the Depo Euro-style units. Personally, the aftermarket projector lights for the W124 look like crap and the light output is of similar par.

Also, complete your user profile for location and model. I presume you have a pre-facelift North American-spec model?

Aftermarket DEPO or TYC Euro headlights with glass lenses are the most economical choice and will give much better output then the stock DOT sealed beams...

Aftermarket Euro headlights are one piece and have a glass lens..

If you want a Chinese EBAY projector with a plastic lens then go for it...
You asked, didn't like the answer, so go for it....

Yes..DEPO are decent value glass lens...they are one piece that contain the high/low beam, fog and city lights.

The corner lights are always a separate assembly, just snap in and out and houses the parking/turn signal/flasher double element lamp. Amber would be stock on the pre facelift, dark amber on the Euro and clear/amber on the facelift
