Be EXTREMELY careful in purchasing headlights such as these!!!

I bought a similar pair for my 2003 Cadillac CTS, Same price range, and almost exact same layout, except the ones I purchased also had a halo light surrounding the projector headlight.

When I got the headlights, they worked perfectly... Looked BEAUTIFUL! I couldn't have been happier with the upgrade. The installation was almost exactly what you see here too. Once I had them hooked up, I realized that the wiring was completely backward! The high beam was connected to the low beam input and vise versa. There was nothing I could do from a technical stand point, without baking the plastic to separate the glue holding the housing together. I was able to finagle the high beam so it wouldn't blind incoming drivers. IT WAS NOT EASY... Especially with HID lights. (The headlights came with non-matching halogen bulbs)

SIX DAYS later, I noticed that the entire LED strip on one side was out. I was pissed! I called company, and requested a replacement. NO PROBLEM!

Received replacement, but the hue/tint of the LED/HALO lights did not match the original light.

Called company about this issue. NO PROBLEM! Received a PAIR of replacement lights, had yet to return the first malfunctioning headlight. Replaced new pair... Had to re-finagle headlights, as the wiring was again incorrect. TEN DAYS later, half of the one LED strip was again out!

Called company about issue. NO PROBLEM! Yet ANOTHER pair of headlights arrives. I had yet to return the original two pairs plus the odd light that did not match. Again, fix everything up again... FINGERS CROSSED... And... NOPE! Once again, a week passed, and the LED strip failed ALONG WITH part of the HALO ring this time.

Called company about returning for full cash refund... NO WAY! It's been 30 days since my ORIGINAL purchase don't you know! At this point, I had no more fight left anyway... If I had to remove that bumper one more time I would lose it. I have since sold the car to my mother, who still has that last pair of headlights on. Of the 16 LED lights and 4 halo lights that make up the pair, 3 LED lights continue to work on one side, and just a single halo light (half) is still working. I still have the 2.5 pairs of half working lights as well. Funny part, she wants those final lights to go out, but they refuse! Funny...

Now, I'm not saying these will malfunction as the others did, but just make sure that you can get a full refund if defective. I would honestly call customer service prior to purchase. Clarify the return policy on defective items. I did not and paid the price. My advice... If you plan to get replacement headlights, go balls deep and get the ones that cost $600.00. I have a feeling that these $300.00 ones will fail you at some point.

Hope this helped.

Your title is misleading... You and other "Tubesters" got me excited over the alleged amount of destruction in this game.

As of today, I've checked out the multiplayer maps, Dust Bowl and Downtown, via the Xbox ONE beta of Battlefield: Hardline. Even if the video title is sarcastic in nature, I'm still pissed. Not at you... But at the developers for taking out most, if not all wall destruction, roof destruction, barrier destruction, etc... And then blatantly publishing videos and images of ravaged buildings and environments that are simply stock destruction; there from the very start of the matches.

If I am mistaken... And C4 actually does the job, then I'll be very relieved. With the BETA so young, I only have access to the M320/M79. Obviously, in previous Battlefield titles, this weapon destroyed the majority of walls it hit. In Battlefield Bad Company, I remember certain walls/barriers requiring 3 to 4 blasts from C4 before completely falling. I'd actually be in favor of nerfing the M320's ability to destroy buildings and they're structure.... It would increase the value of C4 & RPG weapons significantly.

Again... I'm hanging on the tiniest threads of agonizing hope here, praying that destruction made it's way into Battlefield: Hardline. Otherwise, why give it the Battlefield stamp? Medal of Honor used the frostbite engine but abandoned destruction.... ? Then again... It's all about money in the end. Right? Next up!: Battlefield Racing!

+CurrysauceNoGo3 Don't get me wrong... If all's well, mechanically speaking, with this game, it's gonna be a hell of a lot of fun to play... With or without destruction. It's the misinformation leading up to it's release that upsets me so much... Again, I cite the buildings with those signature holes in the wall.

Do you know what they have been working on, outside of the campaign, vehicle mechanics and character/map design? First off... The community majority would accept the termination of these shotty single player campaigns, in exchange for a better multiplayer game. Easily. I'd be shocked if I was wrong. Next, levelution is an absolute gimmick... Yes, my jaw hit the floor the first time I watched that skyscraper in Shanghai reduce itself to rubble, but a lot of effort and time goes into something like that... Where it could be much more useful elsewhere. I am a big fan of the mini-levelution events though... From collapsing a bridge, down to shooting a fire extinguisher. And when you really think about it... Isn't building destruction, as simple as putting a hole in the wall, a levelution event in and of itself? It's not bells & whistles... It's an integral part of the series, and what separates itself from Call of Duty/Other FPS's. Nothing more satisfying than knowing someone has taken cover behind a wall, suppressed by small arms fire, and you whip out that RPG and sail it right into that wall for the kill. And the falling debris in BF3 was heading in the right direction. If they just built on that instead of these vanilla, repeat campaigns. But it's SO MUCH deeper than that... Honestly, I can't count the ways that I've used destruction to my advantage.

Battlefield5... They will get it right.

Assuming someone already brought the following up.... But I'll post to keep it fresh. During the video, the host mentions that traveling to the farming area is quite far. This is because he takes the SCENIC ROUTE in the video. The Mars map is essentially a giant circle. You'll notice the tunnel taken at the start of this video.... With a Japanese accent... That is the RONG WAY! If you stay straight down the hill you spawn on, you will find a path leading you DIRECTLY to where you need to be. MUCH BETTER! See you farmers on Mars!

This is driving me mad at the moment! And I know I'll feel a bit inferior once told, but what is that theme song sample?! It's on the very tip of my brain...

Also... If you do see other people while doing this farming run, don't spread yourself out like a douche. Work together, alternating chest locations. This makes it EVEN EASIER, and you'll avoid chasing your own tail wondering why the chests stopped spawning...?!

Satisfactory service... So far. Been conducting business through this particular store for over a year now. No complaints.

An entire wall, from floor to ceiling, dedicated to human skulls, specifying each individual's unfortunate demise... More than worth the visit!

This store, while branded under the Ace Hardware moniker, continues to provide consistent service that has more of a "Mom & Pops" feel to it, rather than the corporate retail-type atmosphere. Unfortunately, the prices seem to reflect this, but they are fair, not great... but fair. Every now and again, you will come across some decent sale items. Also, they ALWAYS accept discount coupons, even those non-manufacturer coupons that have already expired. And customer service has never been an issue... Employees have been knowledgeable, and returning purchases is simple; the validity never comes to question. Overall... Very good. If the purchase pricing was better, my review rating would easily yield 5 stars.

Just bought a PRE-OWNED, or USED, XBOX 360 game for $40. Went home to my NEW (3rd) console. Popped in disc, and it would not read properly. Granted, the disc did not appear heavily scratched, but the case looked like it fought V. Silva in the octagon...and lost REALLY BAD. Visual inspection of games is fine when "I" am trading them in, but at least run a start-up test before they hit the shelves. Anyway, returning disc today for credit/refund... See how this goes! **Bugs?! REALLY? That's insane, if true. Upper Darby is truly dying...**

I'd like to first address my initial visit. Tom Morris, as mentioned by other people, is as good as they come. I had scheduled an appointment, but when I arrived, this individual was already helping someone else. Tom quickly approached and introduced himself. I explained which car I was interested in test driving, and within minutes he had the car pulled up front and ready to drive. My visit with Tom was definitely an A+ experience. Very friendly, knowledgeable. The DISLIKE stems from my trade in experience, and their ludicrous offer of $13,500 for a fully loaded 2011 AWD Cadillac CTS Coupe Premium (no nav/50,000mi)! The car has a pristine interior, and good/very good exterior, this offer was borderline insulting. I understand the negotiation game, but I had made clear what I was expecting, $21,000... KBB. Negotiation continued, despite my adamant stance on an overall closing cost. Two more dealers came out, I assume higher on the totem pole, but an amount not even close was reached. The good cop/bad cop routine was not necessary. I gave the number I expected at closing, but they kept on low-balling, leaving for a couple mins, then returning. Truly unnecessary. I never saw Tom Morris after he left, but I apologize for wasting both our time Tom! Thank you very much for your help!

I must say...Do listen to the reviews left for this company. I ignored them, figuring that the only people who leave reviews are those who had a negative experience. While I found the staff to be friendly and courteous, the final results were atrocious. I was having a brand new set of tires mounted and balanced, the cheapest rate I could find for 35 series tires and lower. I was replacing the old tires not because of treadwear, but because they were over 6 yrs old. I still wanted to keep two of the old tires, just for temporary backups. I never specified which two, and they were nice enough to bring me around back so I could show the technician which two. When I left the shop, I reached 40mph when the car began shaking, just as it was when I took it in. Balanced?! Did they even TRY to balance them? They sure did the alignment check that I didn't ask for originally. I called, and the rep was again courteous on the phone...Sure, just come back and we will RE-balance the tires. I wasn't thrilled, and didn't plan to go back at least for a few days. The very next night, I exited my car to find that one of the tires was completely flat. I had the EXACT problem going in! How can you honestly balance a tire if the rim is bent?! As mentioned, I SWEAR, they figured the tire balance would be fine and never ran them on the machine! I even had told them that the one tire was flat and I had NO IDEA why. No punctures, no valve stem issue... Finally, to top this off...When I originally got home, I removed the two tires I kept from the trunk...They didn't even get that right! I'm sure it being Friday the 13th didn't help much either... I will be reposting my upcoming dealing with them. While I hope it goes well, I doubt it according to these reviews. 04/14/12
