. You get what you pay for. If you ordered them and did not like them and wish to return them they will offer you around 30% of your money back and you keep them. Or send them back to their warehouse in Vietnam (yes I know they came from China) but shipping will for you will be around $50.00 and maybe a full purchase price refund.

If you want info from people who have actually used them, you will do better to search google, I think.

I don't even need lens replacements ... mine are perfect.

I just posted this because I understand alot of folks here have problems with there C6 headlight lenses.

Just thought it might be of interest since the price seemed pretty cheap.

Maybe these Chinese lenses are a POS ... I have no idea.

Isn't everything made in China nowadays? It's not a bad deal if you're trying to save some money.

From the listing-
"We stand behind everything that we sell and will do everything possible to assure you are satisfied. When you receive your purchase if you are not 100% satisfied, please sent me ebay message and we will do our best to make you happy. If you still want to return your purchase, simply ship the item(s) back to us and we will refund your original purchase price and the original shipping charge."

Either way you get your money back if you're not satisfied since there's also the eBay Money Back Guarantee.

It's not a bad deal. I have the first batch of umnitza lenses and they are failing. Apparently some plastic manufacturing defect. I'd bet all of the available lenses are made overseas.

. They will refund you money for purchase and your original shipping charges which was FREE shipping. However it will cost YOU around $50.00 to ship back. Think about it !

I can only bet this is the same guy that makes them for Sebring and umnitza and he is simply stealing what they paid him to build for them - its the Chinese way of doing business

Even with the guarantee, does someone really want to take the chance? My concern would not only lie with the return shipping cost, but more significant is the time involved with removal and replacement. I've done mine and it's not the most fun of jobs. Imagine doing it twice.

the lens is one thing, but the gaskets from China are not even close to what the OEM gaskets are like. I've bought new gaskets from RL and his are factory type.
There was a thread /post on here awhile back that showed a member using the China gaskets and they were pure crapppola.

GM lens were made in Mexico
.
.
Mine are made in Taiwan. BIG DIFFERENCE. My own very expensive tooling. My Gaskets are also a couple of MM thicker to fill the void around the headlight, fender and bumper cover better.
I actually like the China Lens and Gaskets, I've been replacing quite a few.
.
Here is a pic of ALL the gaskets (other than mine) that are produced in china and sold on here and on eBay for 18.00 to 53.00 per set:

This gasket is such a poor choice BUT all of the sellers will not post clear pictures of them and you don't know until you receive them.

.
.
.
Here are some pics of mine for my Lens and My New GM style Gaskets that are coming on the market very soon:
