    Default Anyone using...

    ...Non genuine GM headlamps??? I ordered some off Ebay, paid a little more than I wanted to but, they got here next day.

    But Now I've got them they are horrible!

    The Chrome backing has numerous "flaws" and looks bumpy and uneven, the bulb holders are a poor fit, and I reckon after a while the sidelights would fall out. They just feel cheap too, not nice and sturdy like my original ones.

    I've contacted the guy on Ebay to see what he says... but I am far from happy with these horrible Chinese imports...

    I feel like I went to bed with Keely Hazell and woke up with Chris Moyles... SICK!

    Sorry to hear this matey, you would think they would get the reflective coating looking decent at the very least. TBH IME Ive found always VX prices to be quite reasonable on most items when compared to some other car manufacturers. At least one knows your getting the genuine article.

    I remember when I had my vec-c, in attempting to remove the left silver dash trip (that clips in, to resolve a rattle) I stupidly damaged it and had to obtain a replacement. I was amazed that the complete strip cost under £30 from VX, I was expecting at least double that or more. Though I do know that some items such as light clusters and mirrors etc, can be outragously expensive.

    Hope you sort it.

    It doesnt show up in the pictures, but to explain...

    The chrome backing of the "SRI" headlamps are covered in little spots and aren't smooth.

    The protector part is covered in speckles, like its covered in dust, its not dust.

    The rubber cover at the back doesnt fit properly, so fall off.

    It just feels cheap...

    I dont really know how else to explain it...

    I bought it from these - http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/4ringsspares

    Just took a look at the link & I would ask have you received a reply from the seller? He has good feedback for the amount of sales so would think if you are unhappy a refund would be offered. Paypal will listen to your complaint if the item is not as listed. ..

    In view of the fact they have a Ebay shop you can simply return them under the 7-day distance selling act, though you will likely have to pay the return postage. Bit of a pain I know, but if your'e not happy with them it may be the only way.
