Check out the post from @Mazikowski on the second page. I'm at work and eBay is blocked. Had to order through my phone. I'll try to copy paste it below:

In that case it seems like a good buy. They're cheaper than regular Valentis and look like the OEMs which are $900

The top portion is on because the lights are on (think night time). You can tell because the license plate lights turn on as well. The larger portion lights up when you press the brakes. This is normal for all cars, otherwise how will you know there's a car in front of you in the middle of the night.

Update!
  • Ordered the smoked version on Thursday July 19.
  • Delivered to my home in 1 week on Thursday July 26. I believe shipped from the US.
  • Package undamaged and in nice condition
  • Lights look to be in good condition and packaged nicely
  • Lights come with gaskets, unsure about quality at this point. I'm going to test with a spray bottle when installed.
  • It's 100+ degrees right now and my garage faces the sun in the evening. I will try installing them tomorrow morning if I have time.

Installed them this morning, they look good. I tried testing with a spray bottle and didn't see any visible leakage or hear any sounds of water/air. Only time will tell if that remains true or not.

There is some noticeable light bleed on the sides and a tiny bit on top with the running lights on as @dhuang mentioned previously. Not sure it's going to bother me though, again time will tell.

Going to wait until night time to check them out again. Overall, for the price, I'm happy with them so far.

Another good thing about the purchase is that it comes with a nice box and styrofoam to store my OEM's safely

I had to re-pin for USDM -- similar to the Valenti Revos.
