The ones on Ebay are the same ones being sold in stores and online web stores. Just email a vendor and ask which brand they are selling, if they do not mention the brand. Most ebay vendors will advertise the brand as a name is what sells the product.

E bay

If you are careful and make sure to buy the right ones off e bay then you should be alright. Just find ones that a lot of people have purchased and given positive feed back.

Be careful tho because I have had trouble in the past with a few different vehicles with after market lights off e bay. Some times I ran into trouble getting them to fit and hook up just as they should.

In the end it is your call but just remember when if comes to upgrading, most times spending a little extra money to get the best product will be worth it in the long run.

I ordered some blue halos off eBay for my civic. 4 halos (2 sets). the seller was from out east, somewhere in asia. The ballasts laster all of 45 minutes. I had the seller send me a few new ballasts...I went through 4 ballasts in all. The halos seemed to work fine but the ballasts sucked. they would burn out in under 40 mins. They were bright blue colored ballasts. I then ordered new ballasts that were black in color and seemed much more legit. I tested them and they worked fine, although I sold the headlights a couple days later and then sold the civic since I was getting the cobalt. So basically, don't buy from anywhere in china selling the bright blue colored ballasts. The black ballasts with the writing/sticker on one side and red/black wiring seemed legit and worked fine. Just be careful, as feedback isn't always accurate in this case (a lot of ppl will just test the halos to see if they turn on, then leave good feedback.)

Ain't no brand the most vibrant. Gen 2 ccfl Halos is the brightest. None is the blue-est or blue for that matter. They're all white
