I came home from my cousins house in my dads truck and today saw the passenger headlight had fogged up on the inside of the cobalt. I was so mad! So me and my dad got the water out. Put some silicone around it. Let it dry some more, and we put it back on. Anyway, not too sure how long it will last. Hopefully the rest of the time I have the lights but now I want some projectors. I saw in the sticky thread and gen 2 look best to me. Is there a website you guys might know of that sell them with weather proof seal so they don't fog up? Come with the projector lights? and reasonable price? There is just so many websites for headlights and I have no idea where to look. Any help would make my headache go away. I recently got my wisdom teeth pulled and they were just getting better and now my headlight is messed up. Will life ever go smoothly? I hope

I like my gen 2's made by Anzo USA, never had any problems with them fogging up. The lows are projectors, just remember if you buy HID's for them the lows are H7 and the highs are H1 bulbs. I bought H7 for the highs and when I turn them on there is light everywhere except on the road.

Thats the only place I hate to buy. I don't really care a whole lot for buying off ebay..
Don't quote me because I've never bought ebay headlights, but I've heard that ebay headlights with halo's require wiring. I don't have a clue when it comes to that stuff so I made sure my headlights were plug and play.

I bought my gen 2s from ebay and i love them, 100% plug and play, just take the old headlight out and put the new one in, they come with standard halogen bulbs and the halos are cold cathode (CCFL) so theyre brighter and last longer than regular halos. Oh yeah and theyre Black :love:

Here is a link for the ones i have

mine has a small box on the back too, even though its not in the picture, its not a big deal, but they dont show it.... Im 95% sure that box is a small ballast piece that powers the CCFL halos

You basically just fixed the problem by resealing it. I wouldnt waste your money on them lights all i do is hear people complain about them.
Yea i've heard people complain about them leaking thats why I posted this to see if they knew anywhere that sold them with weather proof seals and stuff. But it rained here last night and it looks fine. I guess I wont know till I drive it but hopefully it'll be fine.

It should be if you got all the water out and sealed them good. The seal the headlights come with is garbage.

i have never had any problems with my gen 2s, and theyre made by eagle eyes, which is the same company that made my old cars lights, they were stock but way more clear than the old ones, never had a problem with those either
