Cornering light are the inner lights (nearest the grill) on the headlight assembly. They only turn on when you turn on your turn signal (briefly) and when you turn the steering wheel enough to warrant them to do so. It is supposed to light up the road better in a turn.

So I placed an order last night for the lights, and after I placed the order and the payment, I saw that the shipping address was my OLD address still. I'm not sure how ebay works because I've rarely used it. I changed my address to the new address and sent an email including the new address with my color preference to the "seller" but I didn't got a response yet and I got an email confirming my order, and its going to be shipped and its going to my old address. I called their toll free number and they said they will make the note if they havn't gone out already. My question is, should I be concerned?? lol

Well if their answer is no concerning changing the address then yes you should be concerned, make sure you stake out your old address for that package or just let the current resident(s) know.

Wow I had the exact same problem! I sent them a message on ebay right after I noticed and I got no response. I emailed them a few hours later and they email me back saying I should call. This was at the end of the day so I call the next day and the guy I talked to seemed relatively uninterested and told me my order would've shipped out by now. I asked him what the hell I was supposed to do since I don't live at that address anymore. He then talks to someone else for a few seconds and says he found my order and it hasn't shipped, so he'll correct the address.

So hopefully it arrives at my right address. We'll see!

I got the Xenon White. Hopefully it matches the HID headlights. I think it should right?

Yeah, I sent an ebay message and got no response and sent an email and got no response. So I called the next morning and talked to Mike and he said he would make the change as long as the order hadn't gone out yet. I was thinking to myself, "OK, but how will I know..." So I called later that day and spoke to Mike and asked if he was able to make the change and he said he was able to catch it before it went out and he made the change, so we'll see. I should be getting them in the next couple days.

Do you by chance have a pic of the actual unit?
I've seen pic on ebay, but it only shows the bulb.
I'm sure there's more parts to it.
