Look Great
Replaced old headlights with these. They look great!

easy to replace, though I recommend removing the entire front bumper. it's easy, and takes less time then trying to fidget and force the lights in place.

I'm just adding this next paragraph,about fit, as a side note in case other experience the same issue. I fully believe it is an issue with my car and not the product.
The driver side fit great and installed quickly. The passenger side was more difficult and didn't fit exactly, not as nice as the driver side. However, we bought the car used, and more than likely it had a small fender tap that warped the corner panel. even then it fit well enough that the rubber seal around the light works.

1Aauto is great with fast delivery, and good products. and responds to questions quickly.

Headlight review
I installed these headlights on my 2001 PT Cruiser and they work great. However, the job was much more difficult than I imagined. On the PT Cruiser I had to take out the wheel well liners as well as loosen most of the bumper cover fasteners (would be best to remove the bumper covers). Look for infomational videos on this website. Also, difficult to find the headlight alignment screws. You definitely need to adjust them - they came way out of adjustment. Better instructions included with the headlights, or a link to the video on your website, would have been helpful. As far as function and appearance, however, they are great once installed.
