Question need headlight, what do you think of Dr. autoparts pair for 39.95 +26.95shipping

Hi,
For Dodge Intrepid ES 1995, about 3 years ago I bought headlights for over $170, and they are bad again, mostly broken-either screws or inside. I tried to see the brand name, I was able to read 'depo' or something from the front. So they must be really bad quality. Now i have searched the ebay, and saw some with different price level. The cheapest was this from Dr. autoparts
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...hippingPayment

What do you guys think about these for $39.95 (of course they charge $25.95, which is 65% of the price; I never understand why some charges so high shipping while others, although their price is higher, only charges about $10 to 15). It does not say about the quality or anything.
Should I buy it from this seller, or based on the high charges of shipping, should I go somewhere else? Has anyone bought lheadlight lately, if so, can you tell me where to go? Thanks for your time

there is a part broken(wall) and moving inside, and

Inside the lens, the part of the reflective area (wall) is broken, moving inside. The screws the one that holds the headlight unit are not holding the unit because the part of the headlight unit with holes that those screws go in are broken.

I got some aftermarkets for my '96 for $32 ea. Shipping was minimal, don't remember exact amount. The light pattern sucks, tho.

I seriously doubt Jeff can do better on a pair of HL vs aftermarket. No way.

How much did Jeff want for the Concorde headlights? I would like to get 96-97 style headlights for my Concorde sometime.

I believe the total price was like $145 or something like that one side costs more then the other, but they are worth it I bought aftermarkets and the reflectors inside came loose in less then 2 weeks and the brackets for the screws broke in 4 days on 1 and 1 month on the other!!! I've had these from Jeff for more then 4 months and no problems.
