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!

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...?!
