Description: Cheap but thats what you get. One of my spoiler screw covers popped off and was ran over several times because of cheap double sided tape that came with it. However, really goes well with the appearance of the car. Highly recommended but ensure you purchase genuine GM products or a good equivalent. Cheap ebay spoiler has some slight differences. Can't complain on price though, much cheaper than buying direct from GM.

Product: 6000K HIDs
Manufacturer: Ebay
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date:
Purchase Price: CA$160.00
Purchased From: Ebay
Purchase Rating: 7/10
Description: Highly recommended to purchase HIDs as they give much greater light (when under 8000K of course) and it adds to the appearance by not giving off this yellowish tinge. Mine are super white with a slight blue tinge and it looks AWESOME!

Highly recommended to purchase from one of our supporting vendors rather than eBay though as it was more expensive and I received no support from the seller on eBay.

Better deals from our supporting vendors.
