Camaro Euro Chrome Headlamps w/ LEDs

I am deciding on installing new headlamps on my car, however, I am unsure which one (ie: Eagle Eye, OEM RS version, etc.) I went onto eBay and came across a pair. They are the regular halogen setup with an LED strip that surrounds 3/4 of the main assembly. I am quite partial to them. However, I really would like the HIDs such as on the OEM Halos. These are much more cheaper and I really like the LED setup. Any thoughts...

Wow, there's a lot going on there. I'd have to see them on a car.

Those are typical cheap ebay housings. Not that great. Just do it right the first time and do a custom retrofit. Forget the eagle eyes or the OEM RS. A retrofit is way better quality as it uses OEM parts but you can customize it to your liking.

I'd have to see them on a Camaro before I would know if I liked them...

They don't look bad, but I agree with the others need to see them on first. maybe if you call they can mockup on a camaro for pictures.

But why not go with the eagle eyes, look like OEM and not even a third of the originals.

I get the feeling that they would look better with twice-as-many, smaller LED's.

If you like it, do it. Be sure to take pics when/if you get them.

If you do, please don't put HIDs in them. Those reflector bowls will throw light all over the place. I say just go with OEM RS headlights. Projectors are the way to go.
