    It's a common problem with aftermarket headlights. I have seen someone replace it with some other type of weather stripping.

    i have aftermarket ones off ebay that have the 2 CCFLs, not the 1

    i haven't experienced what you are showing but i have heard a lot of people complain about some aftermarket ones also..


    i hope mine dont do that, i already had to put the stocker turnsignals back in because the aftermarket ones were melting and blowing bulbs..

    maybe try contacting the person you bought it from and see if they'd help you out at all.. probly not tho

    Yeah i used to have aftermarket halos from ebay and the weatherstripping did the same thing. I just went back and cleaned my stockers up since i did the whisper mod like 3years ago and put them on. Also did a full hid conversion. I like them better than aftermarket

    Some dilithium grease will help keep that rubber from getting dry. I use it on all my weather seals.

    Mine started doing that in the corners, but not as bad as yours. Mine were on the car for around 2 years. The drivers side one leaked when it rained though. But, I bought another pair a few months back and decided to just dress the weather stripping when I wash my car. We'll see. I like the way they look over the stock lights though

    what is the best lithium grease to get and will the white grease mess up the trim? I've never bought it before and didn't know if cause it was white it would mess up the trim.

    i want to see a pic of your car with the stock lights. Ever think of the whistler mod? I think that would look great on your car
