    Bought a set of the amber turn signal versions, and really like the concept. I like not having to add a protrusion off my buckets or somewhere else to accommodate turn signals, and they look way cooler when they blink than those turn signal bulbs stuck into the headlight bucket that causes the whole lens to blink ('35 ford). I really dig 'em. The mirrored portions of the cup look way better in person than they do in that photo... far less "odd" looking.

    HOWEVER... I was incredibly disappointed with the quality. They are extremely "cheap", despite the not-so-cheap price, and I suspect won't last long under heavy use. They are all plastic, and don't even feel like "good plastic"... very easily scratched. Plus, the inside bracing and the attachment of the lens to the cup is really poor. Out of the two I got, one I had to completely take apart and "repair" right out of the box because half of it had fallen apart. Sad really, because I've found no other options I liked as much as these. I would even pay more if I had to, to get something of excellent quality and a similar design, but there's nothing out there I could find - only one other style of headlight with similar features that the turn signal portion didn't look as good on.

    As such, I suspect I won't be using them, and will figure out some other method of having subtle, unobtrusive turn signals.

    Agreed. This morning I was out in the barn and cut out a grille shell insert and installed it.... Changing the headlights and directional comes next... Thinking of Speedway 911-01001 items. Anyone used them?

    With an attitude like that, you're going to disappoint a lot of women! LOL

    If the O.P. buys those lights, the Goodguise will accept him.
